Irish FM: We Are On Same Page As Commission Re: UK's NI Protocol Bill


Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney tweets: "Spoke with Maros Sefcovic. We’re on the same page. EU remains keen to find a negotiated solution to NIP through partnership & compromise, but we need a partner that is willing to meet us half way! Instead U.K. Govt moves ahead with unilateral action to break an Int. Agreement."

  • First reading of the Northern Ireland Protocol bill (being presented to UK House of Commons today) not expected until around 1800BST (1300ET, 1900CET). There will be no debate or statement in the House, only a pre-recorded clip from Foreign Secretary Liz Truss. No set timing for the release of the clip yet.
