However, the DUP, who have expressed concerns that the Brexit deal could cut Northern Ireland off from Britain in customs and regulatory terms, said there had been no change in their position following the confirmation of the deal.
Despite repeated resistance by Northern Ireland, the European Union still deem it fit to agreed to a new Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland in other to close the Brexit deal.
