Louise Haigh – 2021 Comments on Reversal of EU Decision on Article 16

The comments made by Louise Haigh, the Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, on 29 January 2021.

The European Union are right to have stepped back from their decision. This profound misjudgement has caused unnecessary damage and set back efforts to make the Protocol work. The European Union – and all those interested in stability in Northern Ireland – now have a responsibility to redouble their efforts to make the Protocol work.
