Quizzing the PM over Kent lorry park

I questioned the Prime Minister over the delivery of a lorry park in Kent and preparations for a "no deal" Brexit. I asked Theresa May how preparations for leaving the European Union without a deal were being "stepped up".

I want these plans to include a lorry park on the roads to the Channel Ports. This was promised two years ago but has not yet been delivered by the Department for Transport.

The Prime Minister told me the new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab would be in charge of stepping up "no deal" preparations. She added: "Can I say to my honourable friend, I know from previous discussions the concern that he has about the potential lorry park in Kent in relation to the Port of Dover. He champions the rights of his constituents and the needs of his constituents very eloquently in this House."

My question followed the Prime Minister's statement in the House of Commons on the Government's plans for leaving the European Union.
