My hon. Friend is making an excellent point. We heard it again yesterday that the Government’s intention is for Britain to diverge from the European Union. If that is the case, as we are being led to believe, it is inevitable that there will be border checks somewhere. With respect to James Brokenshire, there is absolutely no guarantee and no certainty. It is the Government’s wish to diverge that is causing this problem.
