UK Brexit minister Raab favours technical solution to N. Ireland border

BIRMINGHAM, England, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Britain’s Brexit minister Dominic Raab said Northern Ireland was a substantial issue in negotiations with the EU, but it had been overblown for political purposes, and he favoured a technical solution to the border with the Republic of Ireland.

Any specific regulatory solutions for Northern Ireland would need to be respectful of existing devolution settlement and would have to carry the consent of the community in the province, Raab said at an event at the Conservative Party annual conference on Tuesday.
