DUP Leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson says a decision of Marks & Spencer to withdraw its Christmas click & collect food order facility in Northern Ireland points to the disaster of the Protocol.

Sir Jeffrey said the Protocol is harming the region both politically and economically. 

He said unionists and nationalists use the M&S Christmas click and collect but this year because of the Protocol, no one will have access to it.

Sir Jeffrey said,

“The Protocol is harming Northern Ireland both politically and economically.

Unionists and nationalists use the M&S Christmas click and collect but this year because of the Protocol, no one will have access to the M&S service.

The Irish Sea border must go.  The time for words is over.  

The people I represent need action to remove this albatross which is holding us back economically and polluting our politics.

Those parties who created the Protocol and called for its rigorous implementation should think again.

Whilst their focus may be on north-south politics, the people of Northern Ireland are losing out.

It is costing our economy £850m per year and driving down consumer choice and will be driving up consumer costs.”
