“Steve speaks from his own personal experience of being deeply involved in the Brexit debate, but he also speaks for the whole Government, in that we absolutely want to find a negotiated solution to deal with the issues of the Northern Ireland Protocol, and to work with our neighbours in the Republic of Ireland.”

On Sunday, Mr Baker had told Conservative party members: “As one of the people who perhaps acted with the most determination to get the UK out of the EU, I think we have to bring some humility to this situation.

“And it’s with humility I want to accept and acknowledge that I and others did not always behave in a way that encouraged Ireland, the European Union and others to trust us to accept they have legitimate interests.

“Legitimate interests that we’re willing to respect because they do and we are willing to respect them.
