We have, of course, been working with the hon. Gentleman and his colleagues to look at the ways in which we can ensure that there is that commitment to the people of Northern Ireland that there will not be that different treatment.

We continue to maintain our commitment to ensure that Northern Ireland is treated as an integral part of the United Kingdom.
