Leaked documents confirm worst fears about Boris Johnson tearing up rights and protections – Jenny Chapman

Jenny Chapman MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Minister, commenting on a leaked government paper showing the government is planning to diverse from the EU on regulation and workers’ rights after Brexit, said:

“These documents confirm our worst fears. Boris Johnson’s Brexit is a blueprint for a deregulated economy, which will see vital rights and protections torn up.

“It is also clear Boris Johnson was misleading Parliament earlier this week. You simply can’t trust a word Boris Johnson says.

“Under his proposals, this Conservative Government has no intention of maintaining high standards after we leave the EU.”
