UK Brexit Minister Lord David Frost said on Twitter on Friday that the UK and EU had made further limited progress on medicines but we have not reached agreement.
1. @MarosSefcovic and I met by video today to wrap up this week's talks process about the Northern Ireland Protocol. We have made further limited progress on medicines but we have not reached agreement.— David Frost (@DavidGHFrost) December 10, 2021
2. I underlined the need for movement on all the difficult issues created by the Protocol, including customs, agrifood rules, subsidy policy, VAT / excise, & governance including the Court of Justice. We will not find a durable solution that does not deal with all these problems.— David Frost (@DavidGHFrost) December 10, 2021
3. Intensive talks will continue this coming week. @MarosSefcovic and I will talk twice to steer the process, in the hope of making worthwhile progress towards agreed solutions before Christmas.— David Frost (@DavidGHFrost) December 10, 2021
