ICSA president Edmond Phelan has said Minister Michael Creed must ensure that all injunctions are removed in advance of Monday’s inaugural meeting of the Beef Markets Taskforce. “It was agreed at the beef crisis talks that beef processors would withdraw all legal proceedings against farm organisations and/or individual farmers upon farmer protests being stood down.”

“While farmers have upheld their side of the bargain, it is our understanding that written confirmation has not been received by those affected that would indicate the complete withdrawal of legal threats. ICSA does not want to see the work of the taskforce undermined by this and we would urge the Minister to seek clarity from the meat processors on this issue in advance of Monday.”
