Labour comments on the five year anniversary of the UK voting to leave the European Union

Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, commenting on the five year anniversary of the UK voting to leave the European Union, said:

“There is a direct line from the Prime Minister’s dishonesty over the deal he negotiated, to the instability we see in Northern Ireland today.

“The Prime Minister pledged never to put barriers down the Irish Sea and then a few months later did exactly that – this dishonesty is still having real consequences.

“Five years on from the referendum, it is not too late for the Prime Minister to show some responsibility, agree solutions that make the protocol work, and protect the precious Good Friday Agreement.”
