Louise Haigh comments on expert warnings over readiness of GB-NI trade systems

Louise Haigh MP, Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, commenting on expert warnings over the readiness of GB-NI trade systems, said:

“It’s clear that the bare basic systems needed to trade between Great Britain and Northern Ireland are simply not ready.

“The Government now urgently needs to explain what contingency plans are in place to avoid widespread disruption on 1 January.

“Businesses and communities must not pay the price for the Government’s staggering incompetence and failure to prepare.”
