I have discussed this issue with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport (Chris Grayling). Any potential use of Defence's Point Class ferries would complement the £88.8 million worth of additional roll-on, roll-off ferry capacity that Government has secured to provide additional freight capacity in the event of the UK leaving the European Union without an agreement.
