Steven Agnew MLA

Pro Remain parties in Westminster engagements

Monday 12 November 2018

Steven Agnew MLA will be in London today as part of a delegation of pro Remain Northern Ireland parties. 

The Green Party leader will meet with representatives of a range of Westminster parties, including a discussion with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and a meeting with senior representatives of the Liberal Democrats.

Steven Agnew MLA said of the engagements: “It’s crucial that we give the people of Northern Ireland a voice with regards to Brexit.

“The DUP do not represent the majority of people in Northern Ireland when pushing their hard right agenda and isolation from Europe.

“I’m in London today to make that point clear as well as to push for a People’s Vote on any final Brexit deal.

“The call for a People’s Vote is being heard more loudly than ever before. There is cross party consensus for a final say on any deal with senior Tory figure Jo Johnson the latest to call for a People’s Vote.”

Steven Agnew MLA concluded:

“Now, more than ever, we must give the people of Northern Ireland a voice.”
