Sinn Féin raise Brexit GFA concerns

14 December, 2017 - by Declan McAleer


Sinn Féin MLA Declan McAleer is demanding an intensification of engagements with the British and Irish Governments to protect the Good Friday Agreement from the impact of Brexit.

 

Speaking after meeting with senior officials from the Department Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, he warned that Brexit posed a major threat to existing areas of co-operation across the island.

 

There are 142 areas of All-Ireland cooperation that could be adversely impacted by Brexit,” he commented.

 

“Sinn Féin have made it very clear to department officials and the British Government of the need to establish an all-Ireland process on cross-border areas of cooperation as a matter of urgency. 

 

“There is also a clear imperative for a stronger role for the Irish Government in these processes."
