Small businesses must be protected from Brexit - Ó Muilleoir

1 February, 2019 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir


Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has said the Irish government and EU need to stand firm to protect small businesses in the north from Brexit. 

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said: 

"There is no such thing as a good Brexit for businesses in the north, whether it comes with a deal or not. 

"The uncertainty created by Brexit has caused concern right across the business sector in the north. 

"The latest report from Danske Bank has found that small businesses are particularly at risk from a no-deal Brexit. 

"Small businesses in the north depend on all-Ireland trade and the possibility of the imposition of a Brexit border could have a devastating impact on the sector. 

"The Irish government held a series of Brexit preparedness events across the 26 Counties but left businesses in the north behind by not organising any in the north. 

"We now need to see the Irish government and the EU 27 standing firm to protect the interests of the business community in the north from the reckless and delusional Brexit agenda of the British Tories."
