It has been agreed to postpone the Summit level meeting of the British-Irish Council which was due to be hosted by the Scottish Government this month. This decision was taken in light of the unprecedented circumstances created by the current Covid-19 situation which has affected all eight of the Council’s Member Administrations. Officials from across all eight administrations continue to remain active in progressing the work of the Council through remote working and virtual meetings.
The British-Irish Council (BIC) held its 33rd Summit meeting today hosted by the Irish Government. The heads of delegation were welcomed to Dublin by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD.
The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar TD, will host the 33rd British-Irish Council Summit meeting next week. It will be the fifth time the BIC Summit has been hosted by the Irish Government. The meeting will be attended by leaders and ministers from the Council’s Member Administrations.
