The people of Northern Ireland voted by a majority to stay in the EU. We already have rules in many areas that are different to the rest of the UK. Staying in the Customs Union would help save us from the worst effects of Brexit.
Why is this important?
We do not want to minimise the damage Brexit will cause to our communities and to the whole of Northern Ireland. We are deeply worried about destabilising our peace process. We need to save our tourism and farming industries.
