Irish government must now declare GM intentions- Lynn Boylan MEP

22 September, 2015 - by Lynn Boylan MEP


Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has once again called on the Irish government to declare its intentions for GM crops.

“With news today that the North's Environment Minister will be banning theses crops, it is high time the Irish government in the south gets off the fence and reveals its plans.

“Citizens do not want GM crops to be grown in Irish soil and the Irish government must now follow the North's example and commit to a ban to protect our excellent reputation as quality food producers.

“It’s hesitance to do so thus far is a worrying sign for Irish farmers, citizens and consumers.'
