Brokenshire's refusal to meet GFA Committee "unacceptable" - McCallion
Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has slammed the refusal by British Secretary of State James Brokenshire to meet with the Joint Oireachtas Good Friday Implementation Committee.
The Foyle MP said:
“British Secretary of State James Brokenshire has refused to meet with the Joint Oireachtas Good Friday Implementation Committee on several occasions.
“As a co-guarantor of the Good Friday Agreement that is completely unacceptable.
“This comes alongside his refusal to meet with groups from the Irish language sector.
“Mr Brokenshire has no such problems when meeting groups like the Orange Order.
“The failure by the British government to act with rigorous impartiality as required by the Good Friday Agreement has contributed to the current political crisis.”
