Sir Jeffrey – “not a time for tinkering around the edges with temporary fixes”

DUP Leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP has said Lord Frost’s speech underscores that if the Protocol is not replaced then Northern Ireland will be condemned to further harm.

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.”
