Midlands-Northwest MEP Mairead McGuinness says she's honoured to have been selected by the EU Commission President as Ireland's next EU Commissioner, and has thanked Ursula von der Leyen for the trust she's placing in her.

In a statement to Midwest News after her selection this morning as Commissioner-designate, Ms McGuinness said the financial services portfolio cuts across all policy areas, and is fundamental to European citizens, businesses, SMEs and how the EU recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.

She said she will now focus on preparing for the European Parliament hearing, at which she has to be ratified, and will not be making any further comment at this time.
