No Hard Border On The Island Of Ireland – Thomas Pringle TD

Under no circumstances could the Government countenance a hard Border on the island of Ireland. It is welcome that the minister has said they would not, as no Government could do so.

The British response on the Northern Ireland protocol has not been adequate, as we have said. How can the Minister of State guarantee that the EU will not backslide on the hard border? We have a problem because we have to push both the EU and the Brits to ensure that everyone holds to what they are doing. We are in a difficult situation. I wanted to know, how is the Minister of State going to ensure that there will be no backsliding on the behalf of our EU colleagues?
