SDLP Delegation meets with An Tánaiste in Derry
Mr Eastwood said:
“We had a productive, honest and positive meeting with An Tánaiste. I was very reassured by An Tánaiste’s commitment to protecting citizens here from a hard Brexit and a hard border.
“I did make it crystal clear in respect to the North, that in order for us to find a way forward to restore government, the BIIC must be immediately reconvened. Only then can we clear the decks and challenge parties to get back to the job of Government. It is absolutely critical that we get to that place so that politicians here can work to protect citizens across this island from Brexit.
“An Tánaiste is aware of my view, unless both Governments step in and step up - another round of secret talks between the DUP and Sinn Fein won’t work.”
