This Government has made clear on many occasions that we will never be neutral in expressing our support for the Union. Our steadfast belief is that Northern Ireland’s future is best served within a stronger United Kingdom.

The Government and this Department is fully committed to the constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom. Our union is strongest when each of its constituent parts is strong and working together. We remain focussed on ensuring the interests of each nation are fully represented within our union, strengthening the links between our economies and continuing to deliver strong and sustainable devolution.
