Newly elected Independent TD for Wexford, Verona Murphy, has urged all elected parties and public representatives to work hard and fast towards the formation of a new government ahead of vital Brexit negotiations and EU budget talks.
Speaking from Wexford on Friday morning, Ms. Murphy said,
“with trade talks between the EU and UK, ahead of the Brexit withdrawal agreement, due to commence in March, It is very important that these negotiations and budgetary allocation discussions are negotiated by a team that have full powers to represent our country”.
“A new 7 year EU budget will be determined and it is vital that our industries such as farming and fisheries are well supported in the budget agreement. Any cuts to our EU allowances would be detrimental to our economy and in turn, affect our most vital local economies”
