Poots in storm as Gove warns border chaos will get worse

Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove has warned that the chaos in moving goods between GB and Northern Ireland “will get worse before it gets better”.

Mr Gove said he was in discussions with the NI Executive, working to ensure “that businesses in Northern Ireland can continue to have access to the rest of the UK market, and that Northern Ireland businesses can have the goods that they need on the shelves, that they have access to at the moment”.

On Friday night DUP minister Edwin Poots called on the UK Government to take immediate action to prevent the Northern Ireland Protocol causing further damage to the local economy – but faced criticism from political rivals.
