Liz Truss has said she does not regret voting for the Northern Ireland Protocol that she now says is disastrous, suggesting she endorsed it in the expectation it would be changed.

In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph, the Foreign Secretary said that myriad problems were “baked into the protocol”, but then claimed that it was a surprise to see these problems emerge — even though the Government’s own analysis said at the time that many of them would happen.
