UK's Johnson seeks insurance for NI protocol

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that the government must proceed with legislative solutions to the Northern Ireland Protocol as an "insurance" in case a deal is not reached with the European Union.

Johnson stated that he would love for tensions to be resolved "in a consensual way with our friends and partners" in the EU, but added that the United Kingdom also needs the "insurance" of a "legislative solution at the same time."

Johnson yesterday expressed his hope that the EU's position on North Ireland's post-Brexit trade regulations would change soon.
