Irish taxpayers could be left to foot the bill if the country’s banking system is left to fail after the country leaves the European Union, the European Commission said on Tuesday.
The commission’s director-general, Gertjan Oettinger, said it would take account of the “further deterioration of banking infrastructure and of the financial system of the countries that remain in the EU” and would propose new legislation that would allow the country to exit the bloc.
Ireland has been negotiating a deal with the EU for two decades that would see it leave the bloc without a deal on the Irish border and would see a free trade agreement with the bloc after three years.
Mr Oettingers said he expected the EU would support Ireland’s request to leave.
“It’s a very complicated negotiation and I expect it to be difficult,” he said.
“We’ll have to consider the consequences of the negotiations in the next few weeks.”
Ireland will probably have to pay some money to those who are still in the European union.
“If they are still there, that’s a problem for them.”
Ireland is one of several countries that have been in negotiations with the European Council over the EU’s divorce process.
Mr Oettingering said the next step would be for the bloc to hold a summit on Ireland’s withdrawal from the bloc and discuss the next steps for the country.
Mr Irish’s comments came just days after the commission warned that Ireland’s banking sector was in danger of collapse after the bank ran into difficulties due to a lack of capital.
Mr Ireland said that the banks’ failure could have consequences for the Irish economy.
“The big banks are being asked to pay for the failure of the Irish banking system, which has to be borne by Irish taxpayers, and that’s just a total nightmare,” he told reporters in Brussels.
“I would ask everyone to keep in mind that Ireland is a member of the European single market and the single market is the only thing we have to worry about when we leave.”
The Irish Government has repeatedly said it wants to remain in Europe, but it is understood it is in talks with the 27 other countries that make up the EU to secure its access to the bloc’s single market.
The EU says it will continue to offer Ireland a “special status” in exchange for a transitional deal, which could take up to two years to complete.
