Louise Haigh on reversal of EU decision to invoke Article 16

Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Northern Ireland, commenting on the reversal of the European Union’s decision to invoke Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol, said:

“The European Union are right to have stepped back from their decision.

“This profound misjudgement has caused unnecessary damage and set back efforts to make the Protocol work.

“The European Union – and all those interested in stability in Northern Ireland – now have a responsibility to redouble their efforts to make the Protocol work.”
