Ulster Unionist Party Leader Robin Swann has welcomed today’s visit to Northern Ireland by the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab.
Robin Swann MLA said:
“I welcome the fact that the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab MP has visited Northern Ireland today. I only wish he could have come for longer and am disappointed he could spend so little time listening to different voices.
“Northern Ireland will be uniquely impacted by Brexit as it will be the only part of the United Kingdom with a land border with the EU once the UK leaves in March 2019.
“As we do not have an Executive in place to ensure that Northern Ireland’s case is made in the Brexit negotiations, it is all the more important that senior figures such as Dominic Raab should come here and meet with local businesses and political parties to hear first-hand about the main concerns and issues as to how we will be affected.”
