BPA warns against hasty decisions regarding the Le Touquet treaty

Commenting on recent speculation that the newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron might look to renegotiate the Le Touquet agreement, the British Ports Association Chief Executive Richard Ballantyne warned against an approach which could disrupt cross Channel trade. Mr Ballantyne said:

“Any decisions on the Treaty should seriously consider the impacts on legitimate passengers and look to preserve the facilitation of trade flows.”
