Louise Haigh comments on ERG demand for abolition of the Protocol on Northern Ireland

Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, commenting on the European Research Group demand for the abolition of the Protocol on Northern Ireland, said:

“This is a test for the Prime Minister’s new Brexit Minister, Lord Frost: will he dance to the tune of hardliners and provoke further instability in Northern Ireland, or find the solutions people and communities desperately need?

“This damaging plan would destabilise Northern Ireland and take us right back to square one. He and the Prime Minister must reject it – and fast.”
