star this property answer text <p>The Government regularly meets representatives from the Government of Ireland to discuss a range of issues. We will continue to hold such meetings throughout the process of negotiating our exit from the European Union. The UK Government remains fully committed to the Belfast Agreement. This includes the obligation for the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland to call a border poll if he believes there is majority support for a united Ireland. It is however the Secretary of State’s clear view that a majority of the people of Northern Ireland continue to support the current political settlement, including Northern Ireland’s position within the United Kingdom. As the Government’s Northern Ireland manifesto at the last election set out, the circumstances requiring a border poll are, therefore, not satisfied.</p><p> </p> more like this
