Grayling on cancellation of no-deal Brexit ferry contracts
Chris Grayling has confirmed the government is cancelling a set of contracts to provide ferry services after a no-deal Brexit, at a cost estimated at around £50 million.
The transport secretary awarded contracts worth a total of more than £100 million last December to three firms - Brittany Ferries, DFDS and Seaborne Freight - to run extra services from ports including Plymouth, Poole and Portsmouth to ease expected pressure on the Dover-Calais route.
