Brexit Transition Period

This is hugely important.


Once again the First Ministers of Wales and Scotland have urgently called for an extension to the Brexit transition period.


The timescale for making that request is getting extremely tight - we only have until the end of June to do so.


There is no doubt that an extension request is the best idea under the circumstances, and it is utterly irresponsible of the UK Government to continue to reject these calls, and suggest, as Michael Gove did to me recently, that the whole issue can be resolved if everyone has "good will".

Frankly, that comment was not made with good will, and we need the UK Government to urgently look around them, and make the extension request.
