Commenting ahead of May and Macron’s summit later today where the PM is expected to commit £45million to strengthen border controls in French ports, Lib Dem Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:
“If Brexit wasn’t happening, taxpayers wouldn’t be paying yet another huge bill.
“The French President is able to demand £45 million because he also has the option of withdrawing co-operation over the special border control in Calais, as the UK withdraws from the EU.
“Parliament needs to be told when this money was budgeted for, and what guarantees the UK has secured in return, if any, for future co-operation on our border security.”Leave a comment
