Keir Starmer responds to the release of the Yellowhammer documents

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to the release of the Yellowhammer documents, said:

“These documents confirm the severe risks of a No Deal Brexit, which Labour has worked so hard to block.

“It is completely irresponsible for the government to have tried to ignore these stark warnings and prevent the public from seeing the evidence.

“Boris Johnson must now admit that he has been dishonest with the British people about the consequence of a No Deal Brexit. It is also now more important than ever that Parliament is recalled and has the opportunity to scrutinise these documents and take all steps necessary to stop No Deal.”
