The protocol is the special Brexit deal for Northern Ireland, which the UK and EU agreed in 2019.

Unionists argue it creates a trade border between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

They say it undermines Northern Ireland's constitutional position as part of the UK.

The EU will bring forward proposals on Wednesday for reforming the protocol.

The proposals will focus on easing practical problems with the movement of goods from Britain to Northern Ireland, rather than changing oversight arrangements.

What can we expect from negotiations?

Emily Maitlis is joined by Conservative MP Bernard Jenkin and Fianna Fáil senator Lisa Chambers.
