Farmers concerned over Taoiseachs comments in relation to Brexit backstop agreement

Following the Taoiseachs comments yesterday that Ireland is willing to ‘consider proposals for a review clause’ in relation to the backstop agreement, farmers in the region are concerned what that could mean in the furniture.

Last December, Leo Varadkar said that the backstop agreement was ‘cast-iron’ and ‘bulletproof’.

There is now concern in the farming sector that the assurances given are not as solid as once thought.

Speaking to OceanFM News, IFA Donegal Chairman Michael Chance says that whatever deal does happen in the end, it won’t be as good if the UK were to remain in the customs union.
