Oireachtas Good Friday Committee Agree to Aontú Proposal to Invite British Ambassador on Non-Irish EU Travel Clearances - Tóibín
Aontú Leader and Meath West TD, Peadar Tóibín, has welcomed the Oireachtas Good Friday Committee’s approval of an Aontú request to invite the British Ambassador before the Committee over the travel restrictions being proposed on Non-Irish EU Residents to travel on the island of Ireland.
Deputy Tóibín said: ““There can, under no circumstances be a reduction in the freedom to travel on the island of Ireland. This is an egregious breach of the Good Friday Agreement and a unilateral step to the detriment of the people of Ireland, without their consent. I raised this issue at the Oireachtas Good Friday Agreement Committee, and I was very glad to get cross-party approval of the Aontú proposal to invite the British Ambassador to Ireland to testify before the Committee, to hear the concerns of the public representatives of the Irish people. It is imperative that we show a united front, regardless of party, to the resist the efforts of Boris Johnson and his Unionist allies to segregate Ireland.”
