To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, with reference to the Operation Brock traffic management plans for the end of the Transition Period on page 134 of the Border Operating Model, published 13 July 2020, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of the operation on traffic in the surrounding areas.
8 September 2020
On 13 July, the Government published the Border Operating Model, which details the approach to UK border controls after the end of the Transition Period. As my Rt Hon Friend, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster set out in his statement of 13 July, the Government will provide a breakdown of spend on ports by region and by port in due course. Further to the answer given on 1 September (UIN78765), the Government continues to review proportionate contingency plans for potential disruption and works with the Kent Resilience Forum to revise traffic management contingency plans, to deal with the potential congestion. Future announcements will be made in the usual way.
