27 July, 2016 - by Linda Dillon

Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon said leaving the European Union would cause serious damage to the agri-food industry.

The Party's Agriculture Spokesperson said:

“Key players from within the sector have expressed their concern about the impact that Brexit will have on the agri-food sector.

“They have expressed concern about their workers, many of whom are from European countries and play a pivotal role in the success of the industry.

“They have also expressed concern over funding for the industry and the trading implications that may be put in place as a result of Brexit.

“Many businesses are struggling to survive and are looking for guidance. 

“The Brexiteers never had plan and have offered no long-term or short-term guidance to people within the industry.

“I will continue to meet with people from within the agri-food regarding their concerns.

"Sinn Féin will continue to fight to have the decision of the people North to remain in the EU respected.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
