Question 6 of 6 in The Sky News Challenge
Started Aug 20, 2021 05:00PM UTC   •   Closing Feb 01, 2022 08:01AM UTC


Will the UK or EU trigger Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol before 1 February 2022?

The Protocol is an agreement made during Brexit negotiations intended to avoid a "hard border" between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, in which Article 16 governs either party taking unilateral action (Sky News, UK in a Changing Europe, House of Commons Library). The question would close upon the UK or EU notifying the Joint Committee under the terms of Section 1 or Section 4 of Annex 7 of the Protocol (Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland, see ANNEX 7).
