UK border report reveals government is risking UK's future
A report from the Public Affairs Committee has warned that the UK border could be exposed from the first day of Brexit.
The report says that government assumptions about behaviour are risky and planning is too reliant on a transitional period.
Commenting, Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran, who sits on the committee, said:
“Once again we have evidence in front of us that the government are failing to prepare for Brexit.
“Mismanagement and blunder from this government is risking the future of this country. Massive new pressures to the UK border are being ignored and the whole issue is seemingly being kicked into the long grass.
“It is appalling that major issues that we know will arise from Brexit are going ignored. The people must be given a chance to escape this mess and exit from Brexit.”
