Business community must be heard on Brexit concerns – Ó Muilleoir

11 October, 2018 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has called on the business community in the north to make their voices heard and raise their concerns about Brexit to the British government and their Brexiteer allies. 

The South Belfast MLA said:

"There is no doubt that Brexit will have a hugely negative impact on the economy in the north of Ireland. 

"Business owners I have met from across the north have expressed real fear for the future over the Tory Brexit agenda and, in particular, the impact being dragged out of the Customs Union and Single Market could have. 

"Now we have business representative bodies raising concerns about one particular aspect of Brexit, the availability of migrant labour, but we need to hear all the concerns of the business community. 

"The clock is ticking and the business community need to make their voices heard loud and clear and tell the Tories, and their Brexiteer allies in the DUP that the agenda they are pursuing is against the interests of business and trade in the north."
