Commenting Mr Donaldson said,
“The Protocol does not have the support of a single elected unionist in Northern Ireland. If it is not replaced, then it will condemn Northern Ireland to further harm and instability. It is already costing us £850m per year and undermining the Union.
The people who live and work here need a solution which can command support throughout the community. That is why when I became leader, just over 100 days ago, I made this my number one priority.
This is not a time for tinkering around the edges with temporary fixes. We need a long-term solution which will then allow us all to plan and get back to focusing on fixing our public services rather debating the Protocol.”
