The so-called compromise customs amendment simply isn’t good enough – Jenny Chapman

Jenny Chapman MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Minister, responding to the Government’s compromise customs amendment, said:

“This so-called compromise is simply not good enough. It is yet another fudge designed to patch over the deep divisions at the heart of the Conservative Party.

“Their failure to agree a customs proposal threatens UK jobs and industry, and this bogus amendment cannot mask that fact.

“The best way to protect jobs, the economy and to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland is for Parliament to back Labour’s call for a new comprehensive customs union after Brexit.”
