UK, EU might reach deal on meat exports soon - UK minister

British Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary George Eustice noted on Thursday the presence of "positive indications" the United Kingdom and the European Union will soon reach an agreement on chilled meats going to and from Northern Ireland.

"It didn't make any sense to simply say that there's a ban on the sale of sausages to Northern Ireland, we're still in dialogue with the EU about some longer-term solutions on the wider issues around export health certificates," Eustice told LBC. "While those are ongoing, I think it makes sense for them, just for a few more months, to leave the current arrangement we have in place."

Earlier this week, it was reported the EU will consent to the UK's request to extend the grace period for implementing parts of the Northern Ireland Protocol from the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement concerning food.
