Northern Ireland Affairs Chairman responds to UK Government NI Protocol command paper
21 July 2021
Northern Ireland Affairs Committee chair, Simon Hoare, has responded to the command paper on the future of the Northern Ireland Protocol published by the Government today.
He said, “The Government has announced an interesting approach to this issue. If there is to be any chance of change, mutual and binding trust will be the key currency. I am fearful that this is in short supply and needs to be worked on energetically and now. Common sense and pragmatism must not be a dirty word for either side.”
