Shaftesbury MP Calls For Brexit Talks Extension

Shaftesbury MP Simon Hoare wants the Brexit talks period extended.

The North Dorset Conservative member wants the clock ‘stopped’ because of the COVID-19 situation and because we’re approaching Christmas.

Mr Hoare says there’s no Parliamentary time to scrutinise and agree a deal. He is worried that a ‘no-deal’ will bad for our ‘already pressured’ economy, and he says it is ‘time for maturity’.
