Agriculture Minister Michael Creed Confirms Resumption Of Beef Talks

The Minister for Agriculture, Food, and the Marine, Michael Creed, has confirmed this morning that he will facilitate new talks between all parties to the beef dispute on Monday next (September 9th).

Speaking this morning, the Minister said, “There has been significant engagement with stakeholders throughout the duration of this dispute and I believe that there is now a basis for the renewal of talks between the parties.”

“We have reached a point where it is critically important for the future of the sector that stakeholders engage in a spirit of compromise to resolve a dispute that has the potential to inflict long term damage on the sector if it continues.”

Minister Creed added that this can only happen if both processors and protestors step back from Court proceedings, in order to allow space for meaningful talks to proceed.
