The European Union is set to make proposals aimed at resolving the political crisis today Brexit Deal, with a proposal to significantly reduce border checks on access to British goods Northern Ireland.
This comes after Brexit minister Lord Frost dialed the government’s harsh words on the controversial issue in a speech on Tuesday It would be a “historic misjudgment” not to rewrite the faction Contract
But it was alleged that the minister had caused tensions with the charge ME Trying to reverse the “disrespect” and referendum result, he set up his stall and demanded effectively Northern Ireland Protocol He has signed
According to this The watchmanUp to 50 per cent of post-Brexit border checks on goods entering Great Britain from Northern Ireland will be waived, with more than half restricted to chilled meat and plants.
European Commission Vice President Maros Sefkovic, who is expected to hold a press conference on Wednesday, has previously said the measures are “very far-reaching” and will address the movement of agri-food goods and medicines across the Irish Sea.
“Brussels will allow Northern Ireland to ship more goods without check, in return for more data to enable proper market surveillance,” an EU official said The Telegraph.
“The number of checks drops enormously. This is the best way to cut short checks of a Swiss-style coupling agreement.
While these measures may reduce the day-to-day conflict between the NI and the GB, a major controversy remains over the role of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) after the Lord’s Frost Court oversight was suggested as a red line to the government.
Under the terms of the agreement Boris Johnson Appreciated by ministers in 2019 and later, the ECJ will be the final arbiter in any future trade dispute between the two parties regarding the operation of the protocol.
The UK government now wants to remove that position and replace it with an independent arbitration process, but Mr Sefkovic has insisted the EU will not move on the matter.
Asked if the reported proposals were sufficient, Conservative Party President Oliver Dowden said Sky News: “We will wait until we get a full announcement from the EU.
“The Government as a whole is fully and constructively involved with these proposals.
He said there were “broad questions about competence” about the European Court of Justice, adding that “this agreement is uniquely regulated by one-party courts.”
However, he declined to say whether changing this section of the deal would be a “deal breaker”: “This is a major problem for us — I won’t start here before writing red lines.”
