British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that unless they see progress on the Northern Ireland protocol, they will have to take steps to make sure post-Brexit trade between Britain and N. Ireland is uninterrupted, as reported by Reuters.

 “I can say that unless we see progress on the implementation of the protocol, which I think is currently totally disproportionate, then we will have to take necessary steps,” Johnson told parliament.
