This latest broken promise is symptomatic of the Tories’ dysfunctional approach to Brexit – Abbott

Diane Abbott, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Theresa
May’s remarks on freedom of movement, said:

“Theresa May has let the cat out of the bag. Freedom of movement
will continue after we have left the EU.

“But this is not what voters were told either before or since the
referendum.

“This latest broken promise is symptomatic of the Tories’
dysfunctional approach to Brexit.

“EU workers and their UK employers deserve certainty about their
future but are being badly let down by this Government.”
