Fianna Fail is accusing the government of "playing politics" over an economic impact report into the Mercosur trade deal.

 

Under the agreement, 99,000 tonnes of beef will be imported into the EU from South America each year - a move that's been heavily criticised by Irish farmers.

 

It'll be mid-2020 before an assessment into its economic impacts on Ireland will be complete, according to the Agriculture Minister.

 

But Fianna Fail's Agriculture spokesperson, Charlie McConalogue, wants it published sooner
