UK Government Cancels Brexit Ferry Deals
The UK Department for Transport is cancelling contracts to provide extra ferry services after Brexit.
The government bought £89m worth of capacity from Brittany Ferries and DFDS.
Ending the contracts could cost the taxpayer more than £50m.
“We needed to be ready”, said Mr Grayling, the Transport Secretary. The cancelled contracts were part of a £4bn no-deal “insurance policy” the government had put in place.
