The Cabinet Committee on Brexit and Northern Ireland operates in accordance with established guidelines for Cabinet Committees and where appropriate, substantive issues are referred to Government for discussion and approval.

In general terms, the Cabinet Committee oversees implementation of relevant Programme for Government commitments in the area of Brexit and Northern Ireland, and ongoing relevant developments.

The Committee was formally established by Government on 6 July 2020, and had its first meeting on 29 October 2020.

The Cabinet Committee last met on 4 March 2021. The next meeting remains to be scheduled. However, relevant issues arising on Brexit and Northern Ireland are also regularly considered at meetings of the full Cabinet. The Cabinet Committee on Europe which last met on 14 October also discusses related matters.

In addition to the meetings of the full Cabinet and of Cabinet Committees, I also meet with Ministers on an individual basis to focus on particular issues where required.
