UK lands in Euro-court over NI Protocol ‘breach’

[ March 15, 2021   //   ]

It stems from the UK’s decision to extend the grace period covering new checks on parcels, food and agri shipments moving from mainland GB to Northern Ireland. The move follows a warning last week by EU chief Brexit negotiator, Maroš Šefčovič, that “infringement proceedings” were being prepared.
