The Government has agreed and announced freeports with the Scottish and Welsh Governments and had previously engaged with the Northern Ireland Executive on this issue. However, given the absence of a functioning Northern Ireland Executive since February 2022, it is not possible to take this any further forward. The Government looks forward to pursuing further discussions with a restored Executive on extending the benefits of the freeports programme across the UK.
