Jack Dromey comments on news that the Government is postponing checks on EU imports

Jack Dromey MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, commenting on news that the Government is postponing checks on EU imports set for April and July until October and into next year, said:

“This chopping and changing of rules by the Government smacks of ill-preparedness and incompetence.

“They have had years to prepare for this but can’t stop missing their own deadlines. It is no wonder that the Trade Secretary herself has warned of chaos.

“The Government need to pull their sleeves up, listen to businesses who have been desperately coming forward with practical solutions, and get this sorted.”
