Government must find “mechanisms” to veto Mercosur deal – Carthy

July 5, 2019

Sinn Fein say they will move a private members motion in the Dáil next week calling for the rejection of the Mercosur trade deal.

Farmers have reacted strongly against the recently agreed draft deal with four South American countries (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) saying it will have devastating consequences for the Irish meat sector.

The Sinn Fein MEP for the Midlands North-West Matt Carthy says the announcement of the deal couldn’t come at a worse time and that the government has to find a way to veto it when it comes to its ratification. 

Out words: those mechanisms
