Brexit would cause serious damage to agri-food industry - Dillon
Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon said leaving the European Union would cause serious damage to the agri-food industry.
The Party's Agriculture Spokesperson said:
“Key players from within the sector have expressed their concern about the impact that Brexit will have on the agri-food sector.
“They have expressed concern about their workers, many of whom are from European countries and play a pivotal role in the success of the industry.
“They have also expressed concern over funding for the industry and the trading implications that may be put in place as a result of Brexit.
“Many businesses are struggling to survive and are looking for guidance.
“The Brexiteers never had plan and have offered no long-term or short-term guidance to people within the industry.
“I will continue to meet with people from within the agri-food regarding their concerns.
"Sinn Féin will continue to fight to have the decision of the people North to remain in the EU respected.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
