Emergency Brexit powers for lorry queues to be made permanent

News / Wed 11th Aug 2021 at 08:26am

EMERGENCY powers to handle post-Brexit queues of lorries heading for France are being made permanent, signalling the government expects further cross-Channel disruption.

Operation Brock, a traffic management system designed to cope with queues of up to 13,000 lorries heading for mainland Europe across Kent, was meant to end by October 2021, after being extended once when the Brexit transition period ended in December 2020.

But ministers are planning to make the provisions indefinite by removing “sunset clauses” from the legislation that set out when the powers would expire, the Guardian has learned.

Ray, I’m not entirely sure what you think they’re doing but this involves export - not import... as Al said, it’s Brexit - the gift that keeps on giving.
