Leaders’ reaction Praise (and caveats) for PM’S agreement


Rishi Sunak

The Windsor Framework marks a turning point for the people of Northern Ireland. It fixes the practical problems they face; it preserves the balance of the Belfast Good Friday Agreement.

Ursula von der Leyen

The framework is here to benefit people in Northern Ireland and support all communitie­s celebratin­g peace on the island of Ireland. This is why I believe we can now open a new chapter in our partnershi­p.

Jeremy Hunt

Rishi Sunak has secured a decisive breakthrou­gh for the people of Northern Ireland.

David Davis

The deal will leave us with a good ongoing relationsh­ip with the EU and with the Republic of Ireland. Before Sunak, that looked impossible. Now it is a reality.

Sir Keir Starmer

This deal is not perfect, but because we recognise the UK agreed to the Protocol and has a duty to make it work ... Labour will support it.

Steve Baker

The Prime Minister’s pulled a blinder.

Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, DUP leader

I want an assurance that the Government will not allow the applicatio­n of EU law to put barriers in the way of our ability to trade with the rest of our own country.
