Kent council leader warns no-deal Brexit would spread chaos across country
Paul Carter says no-deal gridlock in Dover would cost national economy almost £1.75bn a week and require ‘boots on the ground’
The leader of the Conservative-led Kent county council has urged MPs to think “long and hard” about voting against Theresa May’s Brexit deal, warning that no-deal gridlock in Dover would spread chaos around the country at a cost of almost £1.75bn a week to the economy.
After publishing stark no-deal contingency plans for the county on Thursday night, Paul Carter said Kent would need “boots on the ground” and government resources to ensure that the local and national economy kept moving.
