Lack of Brexit information shows British government's indifference to the north

8 July, 2019 - by Chris Hazzard


Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has said revelations that the British government failed to keep officials in the north updated on Brexit shows its total indifference towards the north. 

The South Down MP said: 

“News that officials from the north have had limited access to key Brexit information shows the total lack of concern in London regarding the impact on people here. 

“Despite the fact that the north will be hardest hit by this disastrous policy, we continue to see London’s total indifference and disregard for the consequences of Brexit in Ireland.

“We are being driven toward a disastrous no deal Brexit. In that eventuality the British government needs to act in line with the Good Friday Agreement and announce a referendum to give people the option of remaining in the EU through Irish reunification.”
