MPS TO MEET NORTHERN IRELAND BUSINESS AND CIVIL SOCIETY FIGURES IN WESTMINSTER

The House of Commons will again host senior business and civil society figures from Northern Ireland today (Wednesday). They have travelled to Westminster to discuss with Members of Parliament why the Brexit deal delivers for their future.

Organisations attending the event in the House of Commons will include Manufacturing NI, Foyle Port, Londonderry Chamber, NI Mineral Products Association, Airporter, NI Retail Consortium, CBI and the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action.

Northern Ireland based companies sold £14.4bn worth of goods and services to the rest of the UK in 2017, making a significant contribution to the overall UK economy.

The Rt Hon Karen Bradley MP, Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, will speak to the organisations in the House of Commons, and colleagues from all Westminster parties have been invited to the event.


The Secretary of State said before the meeting:

“Northern Ireland’s business community and civil society organisations have been consistently clear. The deal on the table is in the best interests of Northern Ireland and will protect vital jobs and investment.

“I held a similar event on the 5th December and the feedback from colleagues was incredibly positive.

“It is so important that MPs hear directly from the people and businesses I meet on a regular basis in Northern Ireland.

“As Secretary of State I want to ensure that a wide-range of Northern Ireland society feel their voice is heard in Westminster, especially those who would feel the impact of no deal most keenly.”
