NI Protocol: Conor Burns ‘bullish’ over protocol progress

A government minister has said he is “pretty bullish” about the chances for a negotiated deal on issues arising from the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Conor Burns, a former minister in the Northern Ireland Office, said he believed a “pragmatic solution” could be found with the EU.

On Tuesday, the DUP said it would not restore Stormont’s institutions until protocol matters had been resolved.

Prime Minister Liz Truss said she was “determined” to see progress.

Speaking at the Conservative Party conference, she said it was important “to restore the east-west trading relationship”.

The protocol, part of the UK government’s Brexit deal to leave the European Union, keeps Northern Ireland aligned with the EU’s single market to ensure free trade can continue across the Irish land border.
