Northern Irish party says it won't back PM's Brexit deal

He added that although the Irish government was happy to give assurances on the deal, but wouldn't accept any proposals that would alter what had been agreed by the British government so far in the Withdrawal Agreement, particularly in relation to the Irish backstop.

"We would not participate in any trade deals which the United Kingdom may enter into in the future and we would find that there would be a border down the Irish Sea which would impede trade with our biggest trading partner, namely GB".

The Brexit spokesperson for the DUP, Sammy Wilson, said that he was "more alarmed" than ever regarding the impact that the deal would have on Northern Ireland.

This week, Taoiseach Varadkar said that the Irish government was "now preparing for no deal with the same level of seriousness" as the withdrawal agreement proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May, an agreement that May pulled from going to a vote in the House of Commons when she learned that it was likely to be met with devastating defeat.

"No one wants a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic".

The step was taken in 2013 ahead of protests surrounding the holding of the G8 in Fermanagh and significant public disorder linked to loyal order parades and counter-protests.

ACC Mark Hamilton made the comments following reports earlier this week that the PSNI had put out an appeal to police forces across the United Kingdom asking for officers with "lever 2 public order training" to volunteer to assist them if needed.

Wilson, whose party props up May's government in Westminster, said that people in Northern Ireland should be "totally relaxed" about a no-deal Brexit.

"In fact we're more alarmed about what is coming out from the European Union and especially the Irish government", the Democratic Unionist Party's Sammy Wilson said when asked if he was reassured by signals from Brussels.

"Brussels must now demonstrate that if it truly cares about Northern Ireland, then erecting a new east-west barrier should be no more palatable than having any new north-south barriers", he added.

The Republic's education minister Joe McHugh said all cabinet colleagues were looking at their own departments to assess whether new legislation would be needed after Brexit, but he had been made aware of this specific issue in the last few days. Even if these lands are not needed after Brexit, they can be used for future port expansion, he said.
