Substantial proposals rather than pep talks needed for progress – Murphy

24 March, 2017 - by Conor Murphy

Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy said today that British Secetary of State James Brokenshire needs to bring forward substantial proposals on implementing agreements rather than indulging himself in pep talks.

Conor Murphy said:

“The talks are in a critical period. The clock is ticking and there can be no return to direct rule.

“Sinn Féin are in Stormont today. A deal is possible, the agreements are already in place, what’s required is their implementation.

“The British government are offering pep talks but what’s required are substantial proposals from the British government and the DUP on implementing agreements. 

“The British government’s failure to seriously engage in these talks means that a deal at this time is infinitely more difficult and it’s time for the Irish government to step up to the plate to hold them to account.”
