Baroness Chapman comments ahead of Lord Frost’s statement on Northern Ireland Protocol

Baroness Chapman of Darlington, commenting ahead of Lord Frost’s first ministerial statement to the House of Lords today on the Northern Ireland Protocol, said:

“The Prime Minister negotiated this deal just months ago and yet today communities and businesses in Northern Ireland are being subjected to another round of brinkmanship.

“The Government and the EU must urgently find a sustainable way forward to reassure everyone affected by this political stalemate.”
