UK PM Truss expected to not trigger Article 16 over N. Ireland Protocol -FT

·1 min read

Sept 6 (Reuters) - Britain's new Prime Minister Liz Truss is expected to not activate the emergency Article 16 override provisions in the Northern Ireland Protocol in the coming weeks, the Financial Times reported citing allies.

Article 16 allows either side to take unilateral action if it deems the post-Brexit agreement is having a strongly negative impact on their interests.

A move to trigger it would ramp up tensions with Brussels, and could ultimately lead to a trade war, with the EU possibly suspending parts of the trade deal that removed tariffs and quotas for goods. (Reporting by Jyoti Narayan in Bengaluru )
