NO WAVERING ON BREXIT BACKSTOP – BROUGHAN

Today, during Leaders’ Questions, Deputy Broughan asked the Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, to confirm that no works of any kind are taking place anywhere along the border on roads or laybys to facilitate the installation of any border apparatus. Deputy Broughan also noted that much of the proposed Irish legislation, the Omnibus Bill, in e.g. health, education and pensions, protects the rights of UK residents and citizens in the Republic and asked, in the case of a No Deal Brexit, will there be similar UK legislation protecting the rights of our people in the North and in England, Scotland and Wales and whether negotiations to that effect are being undertaken with the UK.
