Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Kenneth Clarke: ...Government would have as little influence over deals being negotiated by the EU as a Latvian MEP if we moved into a customs union.

Kenneth Clarke: ...Service and others in the legal system use up millions of hours preparing cases that never make it beyond the door of the courtroom. That has to be changed.
