Doughty – “Secret agenda” to target workers’ rights after Brexit

A secret Government impact assessment of Brexit is reported to recommend weakening workers’ protections if the UK leaves the European Union. 

Commenting, Stephen Doughty MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“The secret agenda of the Brextremists is finally being exposed. We now know that everything from workers’ rights to food standards, to our NHS will be on the chopping block after a hard Brexit.

“Cabinet Ministers who have spent their entire careers fighting against improved employment rights are now salivating at the prospect of stripping them away.

“Given almost nobody voted for this, people are right to keep an open mind about whether this is the future we want for our country.”
