The European Union is considering launching more legal proceedings against the UK before the end of the month over violations of the Northern Ireland protocol in the Brexit agreement, according to people familiar with the matter.

A final decision on timing has not been taken and depends on the parliamentary progress of a bill put forward by the British government to unilaterally disapply parts of the withdrawal terms agreed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson when the UK left the EU, the people said.
