The European Movement in NI has welcomed the publication by the Centre for Cross Border Studies (CCBS) and Co-operation Ireland of an update of the last of its five briefing papers from last year.

EMNI Deputy Chair Ciarán Hanna said: “It is so important to get this update on the statistical information included in the original Briefing Paper, and to look at the UK Government’s approach to trade as the Brexit negotiations have got underway.
“After all the bluster of last year, we badly need facts and figures, and this update by CCBS and Co-operation Ireland has come at a critical time in this process.
