Jim McMahon responds to PM’s claim only 174 lorries were parked on M20 at time of press conference

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to Prime Minister’s claims that only 174 lorries were parked on the M20 during his press conference, said:

“It is clear that Boris Johnson either hadn’t bothered to find out what the situation was in Kent before today’s press conference or was trying to cover it up.

“Either way, this is desperate stuff from the Prime Minister at a time of crisis. He needs to come clean about the situation and get a grip.”
