Doughty – “Startling admission” by Transport Secretary that UK simply won’t check trucks crossing UK border post-Brexit

On Question Time tonight, filmed in Dover, the Transport Secretary Chris Grayling seemed to admit that the Government’s plan for avoiding delays and traffic jams of trucks entering the UK post-Brexit is to simply not check them.

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

“The Transport Secretary has just made a startling admission: he says the Government just won't bother checking trucks coming into Dover post-Brexit. So much for taking back control.

“The Government’s new position on the chaos their Brexit red lines threaten to create at the border seems to be to just turn a blind eye to everything.

“If the cost of Brexit is to totally abandon control of our borders, then everyone is entitled to ask if it's the right path for the country.”
