The ministers will discuss issues around the impact of the EU Referendum vote on public finances.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Mr Ó Muilleoir said: “The impact of the EU referendum has created uncertainty and challenges for us all across these islands. It is therefore critically important that the three devolved administrations work together closely on financial areas of common interest.

“I will state the case for our situation in the North and I am keen to hear the implications of the referendum result across Scotland and Wales.

“I am committed to working with ministerial colleagues across these islands to explore all the options to safeguard the interests of our people.”
