Kilkenny IFA Chairman says consequences of tariffs on Irish Agriculture would be catastrophic

We do not want to have to deal with the consequences of tariffs for Irish Agriculture.

So says Kilkenny IFA Chairman James Murphy ahead of another crucial vote in the House of Commons later.

The British Governments announced temporary levies to protect industries like agriculture and motoring in the event of a no deal.

Later MPs will decide if they support taking the option of leaving without a deal off the table.

James Murphy says its a hugely important vote from our perspective. He says if  the parliament opts to take a no-deal exit from the EU off the table then there is a real chance that we won’t have to deal with the consequences of these tariffs.
