Backstop cannot be time-limited – O’Neill | Sinn Féin

Sinn Féin – On Your Side

30 September, 2019 – by Michelle O’Neill

Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill MLA has said there cannot be a time limit on the backstop.
Michelle O’Neill said:
“The suggestion from Arlene Foster to put a time limit on the Irish backstop is unacceptable.
“A backstop which is time limited ceases to be a backstop.
“The backstop as negotiated contains the bare minimum of protections required as an insurance policy for our business sector and for people in the north.
“The EU have already made it clear that the backstop is not up for renegotiation.
“The protections contained in the backstop must be maintained and the DUP cannot change that.”
