– Britain is activating a key government committee to look at the fallout from suspending cooperation over Northern Ireland, Sky News reported on Thursday.

UK ministers are holding discussions inside the key cabinet committee, which oversaw Brexit fallout preparations, about the repercussions of triggering Article 16, which allows the UK to stop following some parts of the Northern Ireland Protocol, the report added.
