146979 - Borders: Northern Ireland (Answered)

Ged Killen
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, whether she has taken steps to assess public opinion towards different potential border checks between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after the UK leaves the EU.

Mr Shailesh Vara

We are committed to there being no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, which will mean no physical infrastructure at the border, or related checks and controls. Throughout engagements with a broad range of stakeholders both the Secretary of State and I have made that commitment very clear.
