UK government pledges £700m to manage Britain’s borders after Brexit

The Government has announced it’s spending more than £700m on new infrastructure, staff and technology to manage Britain’s borders when the UK leaves the European union at the end of the year.

Ministers have effectively set a September deadline for Brexit trade talks with Europe to be completed – while the transition period runs out by 31 December – when any new deal will have to be in place.
