With 4 lawmakers resigning from British Prime Theresa May’s government, the draft Brexit-deal is in peril.
On Friday, French Transport Minister, Elisabeth Borne stated, France is preparing various measures, including those dealing with customs checks and controls at ports, in the event of a no-Brexit deal.
“We are making preparations for the hypothetical scenario of no agreement. For that scenario, we will be preparing customs controls, veterinary measures to put in place and also measures for checks at ports,” said Borne to CNews television on Friday.
On Thursday, British Prime Minister Theresa May vowed to fight for the survival of the draft Brexit deal which has caught fire following the resignation of four lawmakers from her government.
In October, French minister Gerard Darmanin, who is in charge of customs, had said, France was hiring an additional 700 customs officers and was beginning to put in place additional border control facilities in preparation for a potential no-Brexit deal.
