Sarah Wollaston Chair, Health and Social Care Committee, Chair, Liaison Committee (Commons)
I am glad to hear the Secretary of State confirm that no money will change hands, but there will undoubtedly be vast manpower and bureaucracy costs in no-deal planning, and we know that there are actual costs when it comes to commissioning refrigerated warehousing and special air freight. All that could be avoided if the Government ruled out no deal. No deal would be catastrophic, and no sensible Government should inflict that on their people.
Chris Grayling The Secretary of State for Transport
Of course, the best way of avoiding no deal is to ensure that the deal passes through this House, and I will vote for it next week.
