Regardless of an agreement with the European Union, we must take a reasonable approach on both sides of the border when we leave the EU. The key to all this is Northern Ireland`s economic and commercial dependence on the British internal market; Overall trade with Britain is significantly larger than Northern Ireland`s with the EU. This can be achieved by seeking solutions that are digital and will work best for all parties, while ensuring the integrity of the UK and its internal market. Digital border controls are a way to improve security with minimal changes. Indeed, such measures already exist and have been introduced at the borders of the whole world. The borders between Norway and Sweden and Canada and the United States are examples. However, how can we retain these rights, according to Lars Karlsson`s conclusions, when the government is determined that the country will leave the European Union and no longer be part of the Treaty provisions on free movement? In such circumstances, anyone could fly from Bulgaria to Dublin – they would have an absolute right of registration in the Republic of Ireland – and then simply take a bus or cross the border to Northern Ireland, and they would be de facto in the UK. As I do not think there will be any border controls between Northern Ireland and England, they could then come to London. How is it possible that after two and a half years of discourse on this subject, we have still not received a response from the government? I am asking the minister today, if he is not doing anything else, to give us the answer to this key question. It is shameful that the government has never responded to it to date. .
