Steven Agnew comments on resignation of Secretary of State James Brokenshire

Monday January 9 2018

Green Party Leader Steven Agnew has commented on the resignation of Secretary of State James Brokenshire following reports that he is leaving government due to ill health.

The North Down MLA said: “Mr Brokenshire took on the mantle of Secretary of State during a particularly difficult time in Northern Ireland politics and faced an uphill task in trying to forge a consensus between negotiating parties that seemed unable to move any closer to an agreement.

“Our thoughts are with him in his illness and we wish him all the best in his recovery.”
