Begley criticises new British Border Security Bill

6 September, 2018 - by Órfhlaith Begley

Sinn Féin MP Órfhlaith Begley has said that the British paper on Counter Terrorism and Border Security Bill shows, once again, that the British government have absolutely no regard for the people of the North of Ireland.

The West Tyrone MP commented,

“It is clear that the British government are preparing for a hard border with additional powers of search and arrest.

“There is an urgent onus on the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste to stand up for the rights of Irish citizens and to reject any hardening of the British border in Ireland.”
