Northern Ireland business leaders set for debates on Brexit

By Staff Reporter

A number of Brexit debates are to be held over the next two weeks ahead of the upcoming vote next month.

Business owners, including Merchant Hotel boss Bill Wolsey, will argue the case to remain part of the UK, while Eurosceptic Jeff Peel, Northern Ireland chairman of Business for Britain, and others, will also set out their stall.

The events are being organised by ASM Chartered Accountants. The company operates six offices here, including in Belfast, Magherafelt and Dungannon.

Michael McAllister, director of ASM said: “Following on from last year’s hugely successful cross-border bureau seminar series, we wanted to host a further series of events that are educational as well as giving people the chance to discuss real issues affecting their business.”

The first of the events, which begins at 8.15am, will be held at the Merchant Hotel on Wednesday, May 19. The second will be staged on Thursday, May 19 at the Canal Court Hotel Newry, and the final debate will be at the Glenavon House Hotel in Cookstown on June 2.
