The UK and the EU have formally adopted the Windsor Framework Brexit deal after MPs overwhelmingly backed the agreement in a vote on Wednesday.
James Cleverly, the Foreign Secretary, welcomed Maros Sefcovic, the Vice President of the European Commission, to London this morning to rubberstamp the deal.
Now that the framework has been adopted the measures set out within it to improve post-Brexit border arrangements in Northern Ireland can begin to be rolled out.
The two sides are pressing ahead with the deal despite the DUP voting against it and ruling out a return to Stormont powersharing as things currently stand.
Mr Cleverly has said the framework is the “best deal for Northern Ireland” and by adopting it “we are delivering on our commitment to provide stability and certainty for Northern Ireland”.
