The British Irish Chamber of Commerce is calling on the UK government to seek an extension to the Brexit transition period as negotiations have been disrupted by COVID-19.

Despite Boris Johnson's previous insistence that there would be no trade barriers, it appears Britain has now privately conceded that there will in fact be customs checks post-Brexit.

In a letter to the executive office in Stormont, the government confirmed that there would be border control posts in three ports in Northern Ireland.

For more on these developments we were joined by Federico Fabbrini, director of the Brexit Institute at DCU, Paul Lynam, Director of Policy at the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, and Aoife O'Donoghue, Professor of International Law and Global Governance at Durham Law School.
