Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, has been speaking to RTE News and says:
“We’re doing this in a way that protects the EU single market to make sure they receive information about what goods are crossing the Irish Sea, so we are maintaining the core principles of what we’re doing, and we are acting within international law and we will be publishing a legal statement later today to show that.
“What we are doing is changing the Agreement to have exactly the same effect as far as the EU is concerned, so we continue to protect the EU single market through our agreement, but we’re fixing these problems that are causing real difficulties for communities within the United Kingdom and that is the duty of the United Kingdom Government to make sure we maintain political stability in our own country.
“But as I’ve said I am very willing to negotiate with the EU, but they do have to be willing to change the terms of this agreement which are causing these very severe problems.”
