Today, Centre for the Union wrote an open letter to the Minister of State for Northern Ireland, The Rt. Hon. Steve Baker MP, regarding the Official Control (NI) Regulations, 2023.


The letter has been signed by Ian Paisley MP, our Parliamentary Chairman, Ethan Thoburn, our Founder and Director, Jamie Bryson, our Director of Northern Ireland Policy, Ross Thomson, our Director of Scotland Policy and Matthew MacKinnon, our Director of Wales Policy.


We urged the Minister to take a stand against Northern Ireland being annexed into the customs territory of the EU. This is not Brexit, and this is not compatible with the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

Yours sincerely, The Hon. Ian Paisley MP, Ethan Thoburn, Jamie Bryson, Parliamentary Chairman Founder…
