Rachel Reeves comments on Liz Truss leaked letter on EU trading and custom rules

Rachel Reeves MP, Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, commenting on a leaked letter from Liz Truss to Rishi Sunak and Michael Gove expressing concerns about the government’s plans to leave EU trading and custom rules, said:

“This email confirms fears that several ministers have been making things up as they go with a lack of awareness of the real world consequences of border policies they’ve had four years to develop.

“At the general election people were promised an ‘oven-ready’ deal to be  implemented by the end of this year, not chaos, confusion and a further risk to jobs.”
