CLEAR NEED FOR EU REFORM FOLLOWING BREXIT RESULT – BROUGHAN

Today, in his speech in Dáil Éireann, Deputy Broughan called for significant reform of European Union (EU) institutions following the shock result of the UK referendum to leave the EU. Deputy Broughan hoped for, and expected, the Remain side to win the referendum but by a small margin. He had hoped that this would serve as a wake-up call to EU governing bodies leading to reform. Now that a ‘divorce’ is certain, Deputy Broughan is urging all sides to proceed cautiously to ensure the best outcome for all involved while also introducing serious changes required to address the accountability and transparency issues with EU institutions.
