Commenting on leaked government Brexit analysis which reveals that the cost to the British economy of cutting migration from the EU would be significantly greater than the benefits brought by a US trade deal, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said:
“This analysis shows a fall in EU migration is far from cost free. The resulting loss of skills and government revenue means any trade deal with the US won’t even begin to bring in the cash lost by a clamp down on migration post-Brexit.
“As the government’s own evidence against their blinkered hard Brexit agenda begins to mount, the British people must be given their say on the final deal with the option to exit from Brexit.”Leave a comment
