Lord Frost and EU Commission Vice President Šefčovič met on 15 October in Brussels for a discussion of the continuing difficulties in relation to the Protocol on Ireland / Northern Ireland.

They discussed the proposals published by the EU on 13 October. Lord Frost recognised the efforts Vice President Šefčovič had made in bringing these forward, and underlined that we would discuss them constructively and in a positive spirit. Lord Frost set out the UK position and reaffirmed the need for significant changes to the current arrangements, as set out in the 21 July Command Paper, including on governance.

Further talks will continue at official level in Brussels this week. The UK’s focus will be on finding durable solutions, rapidly, that safeguard the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement in all its dimensions.
