Sir Jeffrey – PM must deal with NI Protocol

DUP Leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP has said Prime Minister Sunak has a renewed opportunity to replace the Protocol with arrangements that unionists can support and ensure devolution is restored.

Sir Jeffrey said,

“Northern Ireland can have a tremendous future if we are able to remove the Protocol debris and then restore the devolved administration in Stormont.

The Protocol is undermining every area of life and bedevilling progress. Whether it is medicine supplies being jeopardised or the 30% increase in haulage costs or infrastructure investment being more expensive due to a 25% tariff on steel, the Protocol has not worked.

If the new Prime Minister wants to see a fully functioning Stormont, then he will have to deal with the Protocol once and for all and put in place a long-term solution which recognises that progress is only made in Northern Ireland with the support of unionists and nationalists.”
