Pressing need for backstop to be banked – Remain party leaders

10 December, 2018 - by Michelle O'Neill


A statement from the leaders of the four Pro-Remain parties

“The four Remain parties, Sinn Féin, SDLP, Alliance and Green Party continue to believe that there is no such thing as a good Brexit and our preference is for no Brexit at all. We recognise that the majority of people, businesses and civic society do not want Brexit either.

“We have a shared responsibility to protect jobs, economic stability, the environment and people’s livelihoods.

“At the very least, this means avoiding a hard border, protecting the Good Friday Agreement and hard won peace of the past twenty years, and staying within the Single Market and a Customs Union.

“Therefore as a basis for this, we maintain that there is a pressing need for the backstop as set out in the Withdrawal Agreement to be banked.

“By contrast, we believe that a no deal situation would be catastrophic for our economy and society.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
