EU proposes to reduce checks on most goods from Britain to Northern Ireland

The EU has proposed to reduce checks on most goods imported from Britain to Northern Ireland.

The EU has proposed to remove 80% of controls on food entering Northern Ireland from Britain. However, Brussels officials are “bracing for the worst” amid signs that Boris Johnson is about to reject the terms of the deal.

EU Brexit Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič also announced that customs controls on manufactured goods would be cut in half as part of a major concession aimed at easing post-Brexit border problems.

He said he would meet with his British counterpart, Lord Frost, who has called for the removal of the entire Northern Ireland protocol as he seeks to end a month-long struggle.

“I hope that with a constructive spirit we can indeed be in the home stretch, and I would be very happy if we can start the new year with new agreements,” Šefčovič said at a press conference in Brussels as he presented four documents on his “new model” for the protocol.

Under these plans, the transport of certain foods, plants and items of animal origin from Britain to Northern Ireland will be significantly simplified, with checks reduced by 80%.
