Further recognition of the need to safeguard Ireland from Brexit welcome – Cullinane
Sinn Féin TD and Brexit spokesperson David Cullinane has welcomed the vote of the European Parliament on a resolution which calls for protection of social and employment rights in the north of Ireland.
The Waterford TD said:
“I welcome this further declaration by the European Parliament that special arrangements are required in order to safeguard Ireland from the cavalier actions of the Brexiteers.
“This resolution calls for no diminution of rights, including employment rights and social rights.
“It also formally welcomes the backstop option which would see the north remain in the customs union.
“However, the only way to guarantee these rights and the economic security of Ireland as an island is to secure designated special status for the north within the European Union.”
