Chris Grayling let the cat out of the bag last night by exposing how unprepared the Government are for leaving the EU – McDonald

Andy McDonald MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on Chris Grayling’s admission on Question Time that the Government’s plan for avoiding delays and traffic jams of trucks entering the UK post-Brexit is to simply not check them, said:

“Chris Grayling let the cat out of the bag by exposing how unprepared the Government are for leaving the European Union. The Government said leaving the EU is about regaining control of our borders but the Transport Secretary’s plan would achieve the exact opposite.

“The only serious and workable proposal to avoid a gridlock at our ports and to ensure the flow of goods in and out of the country post-Brexit is Labour’s plan for a new comprehensive UK-EU customs union with our European neighbours.”
