Clare Bailey MLA

Latest Brexit vote a small crumb of comfort during a disconcerting week

Wednesday 13 March 2019

Green Party Leader Clare Bailey has commented on the narrow Commons vote in support of taking a no deal Brexit off the table.

Clare Bailey MLA said: “Tonight’s Commons vote provides a crumb of comfort for the people of Northern Ireland during what has been a really disconcerting week.

“I am concerned that the vote was so narrow and so many MPs are prepared to support a no deal Brexit. That includes ten DUP MPs who clearly had their fingers in their ears today as our business community detailed the devastating consequences of a no deal Brexit.”
