On Wednesday the UK government published a Command Paper outlining how it wants to change certain elements of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
It made clear that the government doesn’t feel the Protocol is working in its current form and is seeking to negotiate significant changes with the EU.
The Command Paper lists a range of areas where change is needed to remove the burdens on trade in goods within the UK while managing real risks to the single market.
But there are other areas, such as the Common Travel Area and Single Electricity Market where they see no need to change current arrangements.
The UK Government will discuss the detail of the changes required with the EU Commission.
The Command Paper is available to view on GOV.UK.
