Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Brexit, Lisa Chambers TD, has said the breakdown in Brexit talks between Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will only prolong uncertainty for business, the Agri-sector, and residents across our island.
Deputy Chambers commented, “The continued Brexit impasse is continuing to cause much uncertainty to the business sector and Agri-sector in both the UK and Ireland. There is also concern from citizens who await the outcome of talks, particularly in the border region.
“There is a fear that up to one third of the next European Parliament will be made up of anti-European members. There is a genuine concern some MEP’s elected from the UK will carry these values and try to undermine Brexit talks from Brussels.
“The possibility of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit remains on the table and we must not get complacent. We have to continue and intensify Ireland’s preparations for all possible Brexit outcomes, including a ‘no-deal’. We must advocate for our country’s own best interests and will continue to monitor the situation in Westminster closely,” concluded Deputy Chambers.
