Brian Stanley TD welcomes the end of injunction against beef farmers

Sinn Féin Agriculture spokesperson Brian Stanley TD has welcomed the lifting of an injunction against beef protestors, Paraic Brady and Colm Leonard.

Speaking today Teachta Stanley said;

“I welcome today’s news that the injunction against these beef farmers has been lifted.  This is long overdue.

“This issue has caused a lot of angst and anger right across the farming community and was an impediment to the Beef Market Task Force moving ahead with its work on a constructive basis.

“The fact that the meat processor refused to lift the injunction up to this point has impeded the Task Force’s progress.

“I raised this issue yesterday in the Dáil with the Minister for Agriculture and separately with the Taoiseach and asked them to use their influence the get the processor to drop the injunction.

“It’s important now that the Task Force meets in plenary session and gets all the stakeholders around the table to deal with the crisis in the beef sector.

“I also suggested to the Tánaiste in the Dáil today that representatives of the retailers need to there and that the Minister for Agriculture convene the Task Force immediately.”
