Securing a deal is critical to the British national interest for jobs and security – Rachel Reeves

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to tonight’s joint statement from the Prime Minister and President of the European Commission, said:

“Day after day we see this government failing to deliver their promises to the British people and failing to get the deal they promised done.

“Securing a deal is critical to the British national interest for jobs and security. Even at this 11th hour, we urge both sides to get on with reaching an agreement. We can then focus on the job at hand which is securing the economy and rebuilding our country from the pandemic.”
