Northern Ireland Protocol

The Northern Ireland Protocol aims to ensure seamless movement across the land border between North Ireland (in the United Kingdom) and the Republic of Ireland (in the European Union). It seeks to keep the border open and avoid new infrastructure like cameras and border posts from propping up. Its overall objective is to protect the 1998 Northern Ireland peace deal.
The United Kingdom government is looking to make several changes to this agreement. Since the agreement was enforced at the beginning of this year, it has caused several disagreements between the signatories, including a row over transporting sausages and other frozen meats.
