UK welcomes EU's new proposals on NI protocol - minister

British Minister without Portfolio Oliver Dowden remarked on Wednesday the United Kingdom's government deems the changes the European Union is reportedly going to propose for the Northern Ireland Protocol from the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement as "welcome."

Dowden stressed that London is engaged "fully" and "constructively" in Brussels's proposals while seeking some "fundamental changes" to the deal. Still, he added the government will have a proper reaction to the newest developments after the EU officially reveals its suggestions later in the day.

His comments come following the report the bloc is planning to lift 50% of its checks on goods that go to Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.
