Umunna – Hunt’s memo reveals reality of a hard Brexit

Commenting on Jeremy Hunt’s memo which mentioned people “fleeing the UK” in the event of a hard Brexit, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“Whether it was photographed by accident or design, this document hits the nail on the head – a hard, destructive Brexit will lead to more EU citizens who work in the NHS leaving our country. 

“Indeed, the number of EU nurses leaving has already increased since the referendum, which is putting our hospitals under great strain. Jeremy Hunt needs to make that point forcefully to the Prime Minister.”
