Brexit news LIVE – DUP calls on PM to trigger Article 16 of Northern Ireland Protocol and scrap UK-EU trade deal

A CALL by the DUP to trigger Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol is to be debated at Westminster later this month.

It comes as more than 100,000 people signed a petition calling for the emergency move by the party within 24 hours.

The UK and EU have reiterated their “full commitment” to the new arrangements governing Great Britain-to-Northern Ireland trade post-Brexit.

But DUP leader Arlene Foster said there “has to be a recognition in London, Dublin and Brussels that damage has been done by this protocol and therefore we have to deal with it”.
