star this property answer text <p>There has been a range of engagement with the Irish Government, including a meeting between the Prime Minister and the Taoiseach in London on the 26 July and meetings between the Secretary of State for Exiting the EU and Irish Ministers in Dublin on 8 September. We have had a Common Travel Area between the UK and the Republic of Ireland many years before either country was a member of the European Union. There is a strong will in the UK Government, the Irish Government and the Northern Ireland Executive to preserve it, and it remains our intention to do so.</p> more like this

The latter will allow us to take account of the particular interests that Gibraltar has, given that the EU Treaties apply to a large extent in Gibraltar, with some exceptions (for example, Gibraltar is not part of the Customs Union).<br><br>Regarding the Common Travel Area between the United Kingdom and Ireland, there is a strong commitment between the United Kingdom government, the Irish government and the Northern Ireland Executive to protect the current arrangement.

The principles in the Joint Report from the UK and EU negotiators are a welcome agreement on this crucial issue. We have reached a balanced set of commitments that reiterate both our commitment to avoid a hard land border, and our clear position on preserving the constitutional and economic integrity of the UK.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister reaffirmed her commitments to the Northern Ireland and Ireland border in her speech at Mansion House, recognising the unique circumstances in Northern Ireland, and our shared commitments to avoiding a hard border. We have always been clear from the outset that the best way to achieve this is through the overall relationship between the UK and the EU.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>As the Prime Minister set out in her letter to Donald Tusk, we have agreed that, at least, the so-called ‘backstop’ option should be translated in legally binding form in to the Withdrawal Agreement. There are some aspects of the Commission’s proposals which we agree with - particularly the preservation of the Common Travel Area. The Prime Minister has made our position on the other elements of the draft text clear, and said that we could never accept this. There is agreement that the scope of the issues covered by the draft Protocol - focusing on goods and agriculture - reflects the right set of issues.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Following March European Council, the UK and EU negotiating teams are now engaged in an intensive round of discussions to negotiate in detail on all the issues and scenarios set out in the Joint Report.</p>
