Sinn Féin MPs meet with British Opposition parties
Sinn Féin MPs Francie Molloy and Mickey Brady have met with representatives of Labour, Plaid Cymru and the Scottish National Party (SNP) in a series of engagements today in London.
Speaking following today’s meetings Francie Molloy provided an update on the ongoing talks process in the north of Ireland, and stressed the impact of Brexit on communities across Ireland:
“Today was an important opportunity to engage with members of the British opposition on a range of important issues,” he said.
“We made it clear that designated special status within the EU was the best way to protect Ireland north and south from a disastrous Tory Brexit.
“Our cross-party engagements on these issues are critical.
“These meetings give Sinn Féin MPs the opportunity to update the British opposition on the denial of rights, enjoyed by citizens everywhere else in these islands, which are at the heart of political deadlock in the north.”
