Jim McMahon – 2021 Comments on Delays at Borders

The comments made by Jim McMahon, the Shadow Transport Secretary, on 8 January 2021.

The Government promised it had a plan to make sure things ran smoothly for businesses and hauliers post-Brexit.

It’s clear the problems caused by its poor preparation and delaying tactics have not gone away. Ministers have to get a grip on this and make sure essential workers are actually able to do their jobs, or we risk seeing a repeat of the chaos on our roads at Christmas.
