Snippet Contents:

On Brexit, to date the Government has focused on high-level issues. It also needs to begin planning in respect of the mitigation of impacts which we know will come. Three core policy areas in particular require attention: investment in infrastructure, state aid rules, and making the European globalisation adjustment fund fit for purpose. I have said repeatedly that we now need to plan for investment in roads and ports and in ensuring the facilities are ready in the event of Ireland having to strengthen its direct links to the Continent. Ports such Rosslare will become pivotal in this regard.
I have proposed, and I am in interested in Sinn Féin's view, that the proceeds of the AIB sale should be used for infrastructure. It is not actually the fiscal rules which are impacting on that. It is the Stability and Growth Pact rules under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. These rules, which go back to the creation of economic and monetary union the bones of 20 years ago, determine that the proceeds of asset sales should not benefit the general government balance. There is a separate issue about the spending of that but I think that can be addressed and I have begun that discussion.
Has the Taoiseach begun negotiations at EU level to ensure we have the flexibilities in respect of expenditure which will allow us to address the issues of Brexit?
