The Prime Minister and I have held a number of discussions with the Northern Ireland Executive and the Irish Government, including the First and deputy First Minister and the Taoiseach, and the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan. The Prime Minister has said that the Government ‘must ensure that the interests of all parts of our United Kingdom are protected and advanced. So as we prepare for a new negotiation with the European Union, we will fully involve the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland governments’.
