Sean Crowe TD meets House of Commons Exiting the EU Committee

23 February, 2017 - by Seán Crowe TD


Sinn Féin’s spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Seán Crowe TD, met with the House of Commons Exiting the EU Committee in Leinster House.

Speaking after the meeting Deputy Crowe said:

“I welcomed the opportunity to meet the House of Commons Exiting the EU Committee during their one day visit to Dublin.

“During our meeting I detailed my party’s deep concerns over the British Government’s approach to Brexit and how it will impact on Ireland unless the North is granted a special status within the EU.

“I told the Committee that the North being forced to leave the EU against the expressed wishes of its people will also represent a major set-back for the political process in the north, and directly challenge the integrity of the Good Friday Agreement. I made it clear that this also fundamentally undermines the principle of consent contained in the Agreement.

“I also briefed the Committee on the Sinn Féin motion, which was passed by the Dáil last week, calling on the Government to negotiate for special designated status within the EU.”
