Reacting to this morning’s announcement that the issue of cross-border traffic between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic has been resolved.
Road Haulage Association chief executive Richard Burnett said: “We hope that the successful outcome of these particular border issues can be reflected in negotiations over cross-border traffic between other EU member states. However, our big concern is that we can strike a deal for free-flowing lorry traffic across the Channel.”
The RHA also welcomes the statement made by the Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar: “We do not want to see a border in the Irish Sea.”
