Keir Starmer responds to the publication of the latest no deal papers

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to the publication of the latest no deal papers, said:

“A no deal Brexit would be catastrophic for people’s jobs, the economy and for the border in Northern Ireland.

“We are less than 200 days until we leave the European Union and the Government still has no credible plan for Brexit. The Cabinet should be planning to negotiate a good deal for Britain, not planning for failure or blaming businesses for the Government’s chaos.

“The only reason the Government is talking about no deal is because the Tory civil war on Europe prevents the Prime Minister from negotiating a good deal.

“With the clock ticking, Ministers should drop the irresponsible rhetoric and start putting jobs and the economy first.”
