Angela McGowan, CBI NI Director, said:
“The government’s decision to stand behind the main operators in the roll-on-roll-off ferry sector at this difficult time acknowledges the vital role they play ensuring essential goods reach the UK and the island of Ireland.

“These routes are critically important at this time for the movement of goods, including food and medical supplies. Businesses and the communities they serve across Northern Ireland will breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that these crucial parts of the supply chain will remain in operation.”
