PM: Northern Ireland Protocol - Let's fix it, not nix it

Prime Minister Boris Johnson claims there are "good, common sense" solutions to issues posed by the Northern Ireland Protocol and that he wants to work with "our EU friends" to "fix it, not nix it".

He says the "higher duty" of the UK government in international law is to the Good Friday Agreement and, to that end, changes to the Protocol are a "necessity".

Truss: No reason for EU action over our NI Protocol changes

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss claims there is "no reason" for the EU to take action over the UK's proposed changes to the Northern Ireland Protocol as they "don't make the EU any worse off". She says the alterations they are making are legal because the Protocol "undermines" the Good Friday Agreement and are aimed at making sure the people of N.
