Commenting on new government documents uncovered by the Labour Party suggesting the Prime Minister has misled the public over post-Brexit customs checks for Northern Ireland, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:
“Once again, government documents show you can’t trust Boris Johnson.
“His reckless approach and cavalier disregard for the truth is putting at risk the hard-won peace in Northern Ireland.
“It’s vital the Good Friday Agreement is protected by the next government.”
