Brexit proceedings to kick off within days – and NI could lose some of its industry to the Repubic

Laws that kick off Brexit proceedings will be brought to the UK’s Parliament within days – after the government there lost a Supreme Court appeal.

It’s ruled the process must be debated by MPs first – while Scottish Nationalists say they’ll vote against it.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs here Charlie Flanagan has noted the ruling and welcomed confirmation that Theresa May will begin BREXIT in the coming weeks.

Jeremy Wright is the country’s Attorney General.

 

Meanwhile, Declan Fearon from the Group Border Communities Against Brexit says that there is a very real possibility that businesses will relocate from the north to the south of Ireland.

He says that companies are likely to take the step in order to stay within the EU.

Michael Crick is a journalist with Channel 4 News news.

He says it’s likely Theresa May will be able to go ahead with the Brexit proceedings by the end of March.
