Britain's minister for Brexit opportunities said he would be surprised if the European Union tore up the existing post-Brexit trade deal in response to any unilateral action London may take in the ongoing row over Northern Ireland.
"It would not necessarily seem a beneficial approach for them to take, because it also would harm their consumers," Jacob Rees-Mogg told BBC Radio on Friday.
"Cutting off a major supplier is an act of self-harm. Does the EU want to commit acts of self-harm? It may do, but I wouldn't have thought it likely."
