Danny Kinahan – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Northern Ireland Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Danny Kinahan on 2016-02-23.

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what assessment she has made of the potential effect of the UK leaving the EU on cross-border trade in Northern Ireland.

Mr Ben Wallace

As the Prime Minister has made clear, the United Kingdom will be stronger, safer and better off by remaining in a reformed European Union.

This includes Northern Ireland, where UK membership of the EU helps ensure a stable and secure relationship for trade and investment within the Union and in particular with its largest export partner, the Republic of Ireland.
