He said, “Over the past few weeks Downing Street has been repeatedly briefing the media that significant or substantial progress has been made in order to achieve what they, and we, have said needs to be achieved; frictionless trade within the United Kingdom and the Irish Sea border removed.

For weeks back in the Spring they claimed they were unsure of what precisely we wanted, despite being repeatedly told. This led to us providing the Government with a paper which they have been looking at for several months.

The time has come for briefing designed to pressurise us to stop and delivery on what they have repeatedly promised, to happen.”
