Umunna - Boris Johnson was "talking nonsense" about the Single Market at the Foreign Affairs Select Committee

Commenting on Boris Johnson's appearance at the Foreign Affairs Select Committee today, Chuka Umunna MP, Chair of Vote Leave Watch, said:

"Brexiteers will not trick the British people by pretending the Single Market somehow doesn't exist. It does, and it gives British businesses totally free access to the biggest market on Earth, supporting millions of jobs.

"When Leavers like Boris claim that Britain will get a trade deal of 'greater value' than the Single Market, they are unfortunately talking nonsense. The only way for them to minimise the economic damage to Britain they dismiss so blithely is to negotiate to keep Britain in the Single Market."
