Lord Frost will call on Brussels to remove the role of the European Court of Justice from the Northern Ireland Protocol. The minister will add the role of the ECJ has created a huge imbalance in the way the Protocol operates. Due to the significant issues caused to trade in Northern Ireland, Lord Frost will warn Brussels will make a “historic misjudgment” if it does not address the UK’s concerns in full. 

If the UK’s concerns are addressed, Lord Frost will claim the two sides can progress on a new balance. 

Maros Sefcovic is expected to provide proposals to amend the Northern Ireland protocol on Wednesday. 

The EU has signalled it will allow products such as sausages to enter the province. 

They will be labelled as “national identity products” and the two sides will continue to negotiate over the protocol until next month.

“They’re going to rob us blind. But we’ve never had more than 70 vessels before and they are trying to get another 140 to 200 boat licences.

“They are going to cry like babies, the French will cry like babies to try and benefit themselves, they’re greedy, they are pirates.”
