Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, if he will publish the outcome of the joint mapping exercise on border arrangements between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland carried out by those negotiating on behalf of the Government and the EU.

Answer (Mr Robin Walker)

The Secretary of State for Exiting the EU, David Davis, has written to the Chair of the Exiting the EU Committee, Rt Hon Hilary Benn MP, committing to publishing the results of the North-South cooperation mapping exercise as soon as they are available.

Currently, the joint mapping exercise remains part of ongoing negotiations with the EU and further work has been agreed to finalise it.

We are hopeful that we can conclude this soon. We would, of course, seek to coordinate any release of information with the European Commission.
