Responding to the news that the Conservative Government have been forced to pay Eurotunnel £33 million, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:
“This news compounds the Conservative Government’s embarrassment over their botched ferry contract.
"Now Ministers have poured another £30 million down the drain because they didn’t take even the most elementary precautions at the beginning of the process.
“In any normal world Chris Grayling would have been fired long ago. It is incomprehensible that he is still in his role.”
