That Irish Sea infrastructure… May 21, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

The government has confirmed for the first time there will be Brexit checks on animals and food goods entering Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK from next January.Michael Gove said such a step would be necessary to ensure the entire island of Ireland maintained “disease-free status”, with border inspection posts for agri-food arrivals at Belfast port, Belfast international airport, Belfast City airport and Warrenpoint Port.



Speaking in the House of Commons Michael Gove said there would be no new customs infrastructure, but he said it does make sense to expand on existing checks at Larne and Belfast. But he said this would not expand to other areas, reports London Correspondent Sean Whelan.

Mr Gove said the approach will continue to be informed by constant conversations with all parts of the community in Northern Ireland.
