Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
The Senator has identified the reason we have been working so hard to make sure there will not be a border. We want to make sure that those trucks are able to move in a frictionless way. In the context of an orderly Brexit occurring with a backstop in place, that process can be managed, which in my opinion is the best option open to Ireland, the UK and the European Union.
In the event that we do not reach an agreement, the management of that truck will be the subject of engagement between the European Commission, Ireland and the UK.
