McFadden - Extraordinary that government is exercised about EU preparing for no deal

David Davis has consulted lawyers over the EU’s preparations for a no-deal Brexit, according to a leaked letter from the Brexit Secretary to the Prime Minister, seen by the Financial Times.

Commenting, Pat McFadden MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“The government is implicitly threatening a no-deal scenario. It should come as no surprise that the EU is also preparing for this possibility.

“It seems extraordinary that the government is exercised about the EU preparing for a no deal scenario when it has set aside £3bn in its most recent Budget to do exactly the same thing.”
