Hazzard raises concerns over Border Security Bill

8 October, 2018 - by Chris Hazzard


Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has raised concerns with members of the British House of Lords regarding the British government’s Counter Terrorism and Border Security bill.


Speaking after the meeting the South Down MP commented,


“This bill clearly shows that the British government is prepared to impose a hard border in Ireland.


“This British government has no interest or concern for the political, social and economic consequences of a hard border.


“Indeed, this bill represents further draconian legislation by the British government and totally disregards the fact that the people of the North of Ireland rejected both a hard border and Brexit.”
