US congress delegation to fly to London as Northern Ireland protocol concerns grow
The Guardian says a delegation of influential US congress representatives will fly to London within days amid growing concern in the White House about spiralling tensions over the Northern Ireland protocol, the Guardian can reveal.
With the UK government poised to table legislation next week which could revoke parts of the protocol, arrangements are being made for at least half a dozen representatives from the US Congress to fly to Europe for a series of meetings in Brussels, Dublin, London and Belfast.
The delegation will be headed by the influential chair of the ways and means committee, Richie Neal, which has significant power over future trade deals.
Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, has previously said the US intends to appoint its own envoy to Northern Ireland.
