Northern Ireland’s integral place in the United Kingdom has, and will, remain unaffected as a result of the UK leaving the EU. The Protocol itself is clear that Northern Ireland remains an integral part of the UK’s internal market and customs territory, and guarantees unfettered access for NI businesses to the rest of the UK.
