The industry has broadly welcomed the new deal struck between the UK and EU for goods travelling to Northern Ireland – the so-called Windsor Framework – but cautioned that it must not now become bogged down in political ideology.
The new deal, reforming the controversial Protocol, is intended to end checks and bureaucracy on goods destined for NI. These goods will travel through a ‘green lane’, with a separate ‘red lane’ for goods moving onto the EU and these will be subject to normal checks.
It also means freight moving from NI to GB would not be subject to export declarations and current bans on certain products entering NI would be scrapped.
