Foreign Affairs Committee hears disastrous impacts of Brexit - Brady

13 June, 2019 - by Mickey Brady

Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady said today's meeting of the British parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee in Armagh gave local people an opportunity to raise their concerns about the disastrous impact of Brexit. 

The Newry and Armagh MP said

"Today members of the British parliament’s Foreign Affairs committee came to Armagh to meet with civic, business and political leaders and local stakeholders for a wide-ranging discussion on peace and reconciliation. 

"I attended the meeting along with local community and arts groups, business and tourism development projects and others to discuss the concerns people in this area have, particular around the impact of Brexit. 

"As a border constituency, Newry and Armagh will be particularly badly hit by the reckless Brexit agenda being pursued by the British government against the wishes of the people here. 

"There is a real concern about the impact Brexit will have on the Good Friday Agreement, our peace process and, in particular, the border. 

"I regularly raise the concerns of the people of this area with British MPs from all parties at Westminster but it is important that they have the opportunity to raise those concerns directly at events like this."
