Hanna: Breaking deadlock should be the British Government's priority
SDLP Brexit Spokesperson Claire Hanna MLA has described the British Government’s latest ‘commitments’ to offer Northern Ireland an opportunity to provide consultative advice on backstop provisions, as unconstructive ambiguity. Ms Hanna added that is it incumbent upon the British Government to fulfil their role as a co-guarantor of the Good Friday Agreement and work to see power-sharing restored.
The MLA for South Belfast commented:
“On the two year ‘anniversary’ of the collapse of power-sharing the British Government are proposing to transfer ambiguous decision making powers to the Northern Ireland Assembly, at a time when no decisions can be taken.
“It is imperative that the Secretary of State, as a representative of the British Government, kick start a talks process to resume power-sharing as a matter of urgency.”
