Government spends 80-90% of time planning for No Deal – Keir Starmer responds

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to Amber Rudd revealing that 80-90% of government time is taken up on planning for a No Deal Brexit, said:

“This is further proof that the government has no intention of securing a Brexit deal.

“Boris Johnson is pursuing a no deal Brexit strategy that would be disastrous for jobs and our economy, and put our public services at risk.

“We need to take no deal off the table, then we need a General Election to elect a Labour government that will repair the damage after nine years of Tory chaos.”
