Stephen questions Minister about freight transport after Brexit

On Wednesday in the Commons Chamber, Stephen questioned the Government about the Freight Transport Association's warning of long lorry delays in Dover in the event of a 'No Deal' Brexit.

Playing down these concerns, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster talked of ways these risks could be obviated.

Speaking after the exchange, Stephen said: 'Michael Gove is familiar with Freight Transport Association warnings that long delays at Dover, causing widespread disruption, would be inevitable if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.  The truth is that no Government should be willing to contemplate the scale of disruption a No Deal Brexit would bring about'.
