All-Ireland approach on environmental issues required - McMullan

26 July, 2016 - by Oliver McMullan


Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has said an all-Ireland approach is needed to address environmental issues.

Speaking after meeting with Sinn Fein's environmental spokespersons from across the island, Linda Dillon MLA and Brian Stanley TD, Mr McMullan said; 

"As an all-Ireland party, Sinn Fein's spokespersons on environmental issues met today to discuss energy, waste management and other key environmental issues. 

 "It is crucial to take an island-wide approach to dealing with our future energy needs and the challenges to the All-Ireland energy market posed by Brexit.

"We must also harmonise our efforts in dealing with waste management and tackling climate change. 

"We also need to ensure our environment is protected and that includes a commitment to block fracking anywhere on the island. 

"None of these issues stop at the border, nor does our approach to them."
