RHA says it will hold UK Government’s ‘feet to the fire’ in NI/RoI negotiations

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has said that it will hold the UK Government’s “feet to the fire” in the negotiations on how the North Ireland / Republic of Ireland border will be regulated in the wake of the UK’s exit from the European Union (EU). In a statement issued today (16 Augoust), the RHA said it “has reservations after the government has said it does not want any border posts between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in its new position paper on Brexit – it suggests a ‘new customs partnership’ or a ‘highly streamlined customs arrangement’.”

RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “Any sort of hard border between the north and the south would be an absolute disaster so we welcome today’s announcement.

“However, it lacks detail and is vague on how the partnership/arrangement will work so we are awaiting more detail.  We will certainly hold the government’s feet to the fire in future negotiations with the EU over this important principle now they are on the record with this aim.”
