Not enough progress on Brexit to move forward – Cullinane

12 October, 2017 - by David Cullinane TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson for Brexit David Cullinane has said today that not enough progress has been made on the issue of the border and the Good Friday Agreement and called on the government to use its veto to delay movement away from the present round of Brexit talks.

Deputy Cullinane said:

“While there has been movement on the common travel area and the north-south bodies, it is clear that sufficient progress has not been made on the border and the protection of the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts.

“This is solely the responsibility of the British government. 

“It is their responsibility to come up with solutions to a problem of their own making.

“Until sufficient progress has been made on the border and the protection of the Good Friday Agreement, it is impossible for the Irish government to move forward given these circumstances.

“The ball is not only still firmly in the British court; it is lying there idle, gathering cobwebs, and picking up dust. 

“It is time for David Davis and the British government to get serious about Brexit.”
