€5bn Brexit fund won’t “alleviate the grave damage” of no deal Brexit – MacManus

July 27, 2020

A new five billion euro EU Brexit fund won’t “alleviate the grave damage” that will be done to Ireland if the UK does not strike a trade deal with the EU by the end of the year.

 

That’s the stark warning of the Sinn Fein MEP Chris MacManus.

 

EU leaders recently agreed to establish a new Brexit “adjustment reserve” fund of five billion euro (€5bn) which will offer funds to countries and sectors worst-hit by Brexit.

 

But Chris MacManus fears Ireland won’t get as much as it will need from the fund.

 

Out words: a concern
