Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Timetable needed for implementation of agreements

9 November, 2014 - by Mickey Brady


Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady has said a timetable must be put in place to implement the outstanding issues of the Good Friday Agreement.

 Speaking at the Edentubber martyrs commemoration in Louth today, the Newry and Armagh MLA said:

 "Sinn Féin is fully committed to the political process and the political institutions.

 "However we are faced with a negative anti-Agreement unionist axis. They are seeking to undermine the Good Friday Agreement and turn the clock back to unionist one-party rule. And they are being encouraged in their intransigence by the partisan pro-unionist approach of the Cameron government, which has had no positive hand, act or part in the development of the peace and political processes.

 "It’s time for the British government to become part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

 "Confidence must be engendered in the process that any agreements reached will in fact be implemented.

 "That requires an implementation timetable for all the outstanding commitments made by the British government in the Good Friday and other agreements.

 "It remains our view that all the problems and outstanding issues can be overcome if there is the political will to do so and meaningful engagement from the two governments with the support of the US administration" Ends / Críoch
