Recess leaves referendum row to fester

By Noel McAdam

The Executive has parked deep divisions on Brexit until the autumn, while its two parties remain at daggers drawn over the issue.

DUP and Sinn Fein ministers, along with Justice Minister Claire Sugden, held an unannounced meeting following Prime Minister Theresa May's visit last Monday.

But no further meetings are now planned until early September, while the public row between the parties continues.

A spokesman for the Executive Office confirmed there are usually no meetings during August.

His statement came as Sinn Fein warned that leaving the European Union will cause serious damage to the agri-food industry.
