SPRINGFIELD, MA—House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-MA) released the following statement in response to the United Kingdom’s introduction of legislation to change the Northern Ireland Protocol:  

“I continue to urge the U.K. and the EU to find joint, negotiated solutions to post-Brexit trading arrangements. We must cooperate and stay united in rebuilding our global economy in the wake of the pandemic and in supporting the Ukrainian people through Russia’s unprovoked war. The U.S. remains a guarantor of the historic Good Friday Agreement and peace on the island of Ireland, which all parties must protect, and build on for future generations.”
