Ireland’s Europe Minister, Helen McEntee appears to rule out putting a time limit on the backstop.

She said it would ‘cease to be’ if MPs vote in the Commons to remove the backstop or for the UK to pull out on its own.

The Irish backstop is an insurance policy to avoid the return of a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

She added that the 20 years of peace ‘is not a long time’ and it wouldn’t take a long time to ‘go back to problems’ referencing the era before the Belfast agreement.
