“The limit set by law for election posters to be removed is two weeks after polling day. However, we are over a month after polling day and still various areas in Northern Ireland have been left covered in Leave posters.
“I have therefore written to the relevant Minister, Michelle McIlveen, to ask what steps are being taken to remove these posters from lampposts and other locations around Northern Ireland, and have further asked if fines will be issued if necessary.
“It is particularly galling that many of these posters contain lies which the Leave campaigners disowned themselves from in the hours and days immediately following the referendum. They had attempted to wash their hands of ridiculous claims such as those regarding the money we send to the EU, but because they haven’t removed the posters, we can still see the dishonesties they told the electorate.”
