Frost departure raises more serious questions for the PM

DUP Leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP has said the departure of Lord Frost from the Cabinet is a bad sign for the Prime Minister’s commitment to removing the Irish Sea border.

Sir Jeffrey said,

“This government is distracted by internal strife, and Lord Frost was being frustrated on a number of fronts.

We wish David well. We enjoyed a strong relationship with him and his team but this raises more serious questions for the Prime Minister and his approach to the NI Protocol.

Whether on Northern Ireland’s access to medicines, our economic prosperity and trade with the rest of the United Kingdom or on the growing divergence between NI and GB, this Protocol has been a deeply damaging deal for the people we represent.

The Prime Minister must now urgently decide which is more important - the Protocol or the stability of the political institutions.”
