“The UK ‘is on the cusp’ of securing a new Brexit deal on Northern Ireland,” British Deputy Prime minister Dominic Raab told BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg on Sunday.
The government had made ‘great progress’ negotiating with the European Union.
We’re not there yet, but it would be a really important deal.
I think it would mark a paradigm shift first and foremost for the communities in Northern Ireland, but I think it would be a significant achievement.
If there are any new rules that would apply in relation to Northern Ireland, it must be right that there is a Northern Irish democratic check on that.
The UK wants to see a move away from checks on every consignment of goods coming into Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.
