LONDON – Britain’s government has announced plans to extend the so-called grace periods over Northern Ireland’s post-Brexit trading arrangements, Brexit minister David Frost said on Monday.

“To provide space for potential further discussions (with the EU), and to give certainty and stability to businesses while any such discussions proceed, the government will continue to operate the Protocol on the current basis. This includes the grace periods and easements currently in force,” Frost said in

a written ministerial statement.
