PM Sunak hails new Northern Ireland Brexit deal, but DUP concerns remain

UK prime minister Rishi Sunak has hailed his deal on post-Brexit trading arrangements for Northern Ireland as a ‘decisive breakthrough’, and many Conservative MPs, including those who supported Brexit, gave their backing to the agreement. Also, the Democratic Unionist Party, whose support will be key to restoring power-sharing in Northern Ireland, said there had been ‘significant progress’. However, the party warned that ‘key issues of concern’ remain.

On Tuesday, Sunak was in Belfast as part of efforts to sell his Brexit deal, detailing to businesses and politicians how he believes it will ease the flow of trade between Britain, Northern Ireland and Ireland. DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said his party would now study the legal text, before reaching a decision on whether to support the deal.

The party has boycotted the devolved government until its concerns over the Northern Ireland Protocol are resolved and some Tory MPs have said they will only support an agreement if it has the backing of the DUP.
