McGovern – No part of the UK needs a People’s Vote more than Northern Ireland

The negative impact of the threat of Brexit on the Northern Ireland economy is growing according to the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce, with close to one-third (32%) of companies surveyed saying Brexit is having an adverse impact on their business, compared to one-fifth (20%) two years ago.

Commenting, Alison McGovern MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said: 

Northern Ireland is uniquely vulnerable to a botched Brexit. It shares a land border with another EU member state, it has a weakened system of government with devolution now having been in suspense for over 18 months and with the peace process in danger of being derailed by the prospect of a hard border.

“Now we know that the negative economic impacts of Brexit are accelerating. No part of the UK needs the clarity a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal would bring more than Northern Ireland.”
