Jonathan Djanogly highlights the desire for Northern Ireland businesses to leave the EU with a deal


22nd October 2019

Speaking in an intervention in the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill about Northern Ireland, Jonathan Djanogly highlights the desire by Northern Ireland businesses and farmers’ representatives for a deal.


Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

The right hon. Gentleman, a fellow member of the Exiting the European Union Committee, will know that a stream of Northern Ireland businessmen and farmers’ representatives have come to the Committee to beg that we deliver a deal. That is the right thing for the United Kingdom and for businesses in Northern Ireland and, indeed, the south of Ireland.

Sammy Wilson

That is right, but the one thing that they have always demanded is that we have unfettered access to the market, which is our main market. We sell five times more to GB than we do to the Irish Republic, yet as a result of this Bill and our being trapped in the customs union, we now find that we will be subject to checks.
