Mr Wilson said,
“From day one of the Protocol, we have railed against it and argued for a practical solution such as mutual enforcement which respects the economic and constitutional integrity of the UK.
The UUP proposals are more focused on getting a solution that suits Dublin rather than a solution which suits the Union. I don’t see the creation or more cross border bodies as the answer to the Protocol. I see the binning of the Protocol as the answer. It has failed both politically and economically. It has taken Northern Ireland backwards rather than bring stability.
The Government need to scrap the Protocol and ensure Northern Ireland’s place within the UK single market is restored, our businesses are no longer subject to EU rules and the Brussels’ courts have no longer the final say.”
