Education Minister Michelle McIlveen was delighted to attend Millington Primary School’s concert in celebration of HM The Queen’s #PlatinumJubilee. A fabulous production and wonderful performance from the pupils. Well done to everyone involved 👏

Absolutely correct. I will tell the Taoiseach tomorrow that Irish Government has a clear choice. Either uphold the core principles of Belfast/Good Friday agreement & principles of consent & consensus or support current protocol which undermines all of this. They can’t have both.
From as early as December 2017 Dublin, London and Brussels knew the proposals for Northern Ireland would not be acceptable, upsetting the delicate balance of the Good Friday settlement. And yet, here we are. theatlantic.com/internationa…

Overriding devolution when it suits. It would never be done in Scotland. This was always a devolved matter and when the assembly was functioning should have been brought before it. There is cross community rejection of this in Northern Ireland.

The stories of those who were wrongly accused in Post Office scandal are harrowing. Today gave some the opportunity to tell their story. I hope they get closure & justice and those in charge of this debacle are held accountable. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-i…

Just voted for a windfall tax on the profits of oil and gas producers. Such a tax would provide much needed relief for households struggling with increased energy costs. It can only be delivered at Westminster. Sinn Fein MPs refused to show up and vote. They don’t care.
Commons now voting on a Labour amendment to the Queen’s Speech motion.

I welcome the legislative steps outlined by the Foreign Secretary to restore political consensus in Northern Ireland and remove the Irish Sea Border. Words will not suffice. We need decisive action in the days & weeks ahead.

Welcome steps proposed by the Foreign Secretary. We now need to see action. We have heard promises before. The GB market is by far the most important market for NI business.

Leader @J_Donaldson_MP welcomes the Government's statement outlining its plans to introduce legislation to change the Protocol, but says that words are not enough, decisive action is needed, and soon.

Those Parties complaining about the cost of living crisis should be standing with us on the Protocol. HMG plans to withdraw Trader Support Services at £500m and the ending of grace periods would make NI food the most expensive in the UK for decades.

It is always good to welcome the Prime Minister to Royal Hillsborough. The government’s words are welcome but what is still needed is decisive action on the Protocol.

Alliance Party The Protocol is a binding international agreement, we need the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement changed. All in one interview. Consistency not the strongest point for the Alliance Party.

@CatharineHoey is absolutely correct on @StephenNolan programme. The UK trades with EU single market via the UK-EU Trade & Cooperation Agreement. That will continue when Irish Sea border is removed. DUP’s 7 tests apply to any outcome & Article VI of the Acts of Union is respected
