MPs urge PM to clarify Chris Grayling's post-Brexit border pledge
Transport secretary criticised for promising no new physical checks on lorries at Dover
MPs have written to the prime minister demanding clarification after the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, said any additional physical checks on lorries at Dover after Brexit would be “utterly unrealistic”.
The letter came as the Freight Transport Association (FTA) said Grayling’s promise would “open up the UK’s borders to potential abuse and breaches” and that the UK government would be unable to stop any new checks being imposed on the French side.
