Diane Abbott comments on post-Brexit access to EU security databases

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to comments made by the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator that the UK will lose access to EU security databases, said:

“The comments from Michel Barnier show the mess the Tories’ chaotic Brexit has arrived at. They are putting our safety and security at risk if we are excluded from the European Arrest Warrant.

“Labour in Government would negotiate with the EU constructively, not spend all its time in internal rows. Labour will always prioritise our security and prosperity.”
