With Brexit negotiations due to begin on Monday in Brussels, there is a need to understand that environmental progress made by the EU over decades cannot be jeopardised by the UK decision to leave the EU, said Mairead McGuinness, MEP and first vice-president of the European Parliament. Ms McGuinness was addressing a Brexit event organised by the European Parliament in Dundalk today (Friday, June 16).
