Responding to reports that a no-deal Brexit could damage access to electricity in Northern Ireland, former Liberal Democrat Energy Secretary Ed Davey said:
“As Secretary of State I saw the electricity market in Ireland working extremely successfully, guaranteeing power to Northern Ireland and having a positive impact on energy prices.
“The fact that the Prime Minister is willing to gamble with the electricity which powers thousands of homes in Northern Ireland is deeply disturbing.
"The people of Northern Ireland should not have to wait and see if the lights turn on in April 2019. That is why the government must give the people the final say on Brexit with an option to remain.”
