Rachel Reeves comments as Dover chaos continues

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, commenting on the ongoing situation at Dover, said:

“It is now over 48 hours since this situation began and there is no clear update from the government – even to Kent County Council – on exactly how they are dealing with this.

“And once again, our communities, local businesses and restaurants are having to step up to the plate to feed lorry drivers who are stranded and exhausted.

“All this while businesses exporting British produce are halted and put under even more strain by the chaos.

“We really don’t need any more dither and delay from this government.”
