Brexit Brief 111

Mark Dempsey3rd June 20211min
Issue 111 of the Brexit Brief assesses the latest developments in the new EU-UK relationship and notes the current state of play of Ireland-UK relations.

Northern Ireland is preparing for new leadership as the DUP and UUP confirm Edwin Poots and Doug Beattie as their respective party heads. Meanwhile, in London, Lord David Frost appeared before the Westminster European Scrutiny Committee to discuss the UK’s post-Brexit relationship with the EU thus far. In Brussels, President von der Leyen and Vice-President Šefčovič have once again reasserted that the Protocol is the only solution to preserving both the peace process and the integrity of the Single Market. This edition of the Brexit Brief covers these developments, and brings together reaction from the UK, EU and Ireland.

The Brexit Brief is written by Tony Brown, IIEA Senior Fellow, on behalf of the IIEA’s UK Expert Group.
