This news is yet more evidence that Boris Johnson's government looks set to crash our economy thanks to his disastrous Brexit plans.
Whether its putting people's livelihoods on the line in our factory sector, or increasing prices with the pound weakening in 2020, it is clear that Boris Johnson's promise to unleash Britain's potential is nothing more than empty rhetoric.
We haven't even left yet.
But the damage to communities right across the UK is already being felt, not to mention the no deal threats he is now trying to force into law.
The Liberal Democrats will continue to oppose Brexit and hold the Conservative government to account for the damage they look set to unleash.
