Real concerns about the risk of Brexit border chaos – Rachel Reeves

Rachel Reeves MP, Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to reports on the Brexit Border Plan, which highlights the Government’s preparations as having critical gaps, said:

“This is the latest example of Tory incompetence and raises real concerns about the risk of border chaos in four months’ time.

“It’s all very well the Government telling businesses to get ready but four years on from the referendum and there is still an absence of detail and solutions which many firms need.

“The Government should be working at maximum pace to deliver the oven ready deal they said they had negotiated.

“Ministers should be working very closely with businesses to provide real solutions and preventing contracts and jobs being lost as a result of ministerial incompetence.”
