Farry: Assembly must address impact of EU vote on Northern Ireland

The Alliance Party has tabled a motion calling for an urgent meeting of the assembly to address the serious impact on Northern Ireland after the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

Stephen Farry MLA said: “Northern Ireland has backed the Remain campaign, yet we are facing years of financial turmoil in the aftermath of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

“The First Minister and deputy first Minister must immediately outline their plan to address the severe consequences now facing everyone in Northern Ireland.

“We are in unchartered waters and today I am calling for all MLAs to join Alliance in letting the concerns of the majority here who backed Remain be heard.”
