The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland regularly meets Northern Ireland political representatives to discuss Northern Ireland-related matters, including the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Until the recent resignation of the First Minister, the Secretary of State also regularly attended meetings of the cross-Government Protocol Contact Group along with the Minister for Europe and the First and deputy First Minister and he looks forward to their resumption after the Northern Ireland Assembly Election on 5 May.
