Brexit LIVE: Truss handed key to 'eliminate friction' in Sefcovic negotiation deadlock


Liz Truss has been handed the key to “eliminate friction” in negotiations over the Northern Ireland protocol.

The Ulster Unionist Party have dedicated several pages of their Stormont manifesto to the protocol.

One of the proposals mentioned in the manifesto is a bespoke SPS Treaty between the UK and EU, which they say could “virtually eliminate much of the friction currently being experienced.”

This comes as Northern Ireland secretary Brandon Lewis played down the prospect of triggering Article 16 of the protocol and acknowledged that Britain is legally obliged to do goods checks on products crossing the Irish Sea.
