SCORES of Irish News readers have taken up the unique opportunity to submit questions for British Prime Minister Theresa May on Brexit.

The Conservative leader has agreed to answer six questions from readers about the UK's planned exit from the European Union - the most significant political change this century.

"The views of the people of Northern Ireland are hugely important to me, and to the whole of the UK, and that's why I want to respond to your questions," Mrs May said.

The Irish News has received a huge response to the prime minister's invitation, with questions ranging from the impact of Brexit on the Good Friday Agreement, the economy, transport and agriculture, to the future of the Irish border.

Irish News editor Noel Doran said: "We are very impressed with the range of questions we have received so far and it is clear that our readers will be putting some hugely significant points to Theresa May.

"Making the final selection is going to be a major exercise but we are looking forward to completing the process and getting our responses directly from Downing Street," he said.

Questions to the prime minister on Brexit should be submitted to by 8am today, along with your name, postal address for verification purposes only and a contact number.
