Responding to Michael Gove’s confirmation today that the UK will not be asking for an extension to the Brexit transition period, European Movement Chair and Former Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell said:
"In choosing not to extend the transition period, the government is choosing to put ideology before country. Just this morning, it was announced that Britain’s GDP shrank by 20.4% in April - the largest monthly drop on record. At a time when we are facing the biggest public health crisis in over a century and Coronavirus is already wreaking havoc on our economy, now is not the time for the government to recklessly flirt with a No-Deal Brexit that will further endanger people’s livelihoods."
