Louise Haigh reacts to agreement on Northern Ireland Protocol at UK-EU Joint Committee

Louise Haigh MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, commenting on the agreement reached on the Northern Ireland Protocol at the UK-EU Joint Committee, said:

“This is a welcome step forward, after months of crippling uncertainty for Northern Ireland.

“An agreement, not reckless threats, has always been the responsible way forward.

“Huge challenges remain to implement the Protocol by January 1st, and the Government must now work flat out to help businesses prepare, deliver the much-needed detail, and ensure the new arrangements impact as little as possible on Northern Ireland.”
