PAC reports Eurotunnel legal settlement cost nearly £100m – Andy McDonald

Andy McDonald MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the Public Accounts Committee’s report which found that the government’s legal settlement with Eurotunnel has cost taxpayers nearly £100 million, said:

“This report exposes the government’s shambolic no-deal Brexit preparations. The Transport Secretary’s incompetence has already cost taxpayers tens of millions of pounds.

“It is beyond belief that he should be given another opportunity to squander public cash and throw our transport networks into chaos. This country cannot afford Chris Grayling.”
