British spy chiefs look at the Brexit impasse with ‘despair’, Security Minister warns

BRITAIN’S intelligence agencies look at the Brexit impasse with “despair,” the Security Minister warned yesterday as he pleaded with rebels to back Theresa May’s deal.

Ben Wallace said spy chiefs “want us to get on with delivering a Brexit”.

And he appeared to suggest intelligence agencies would be left with fewer resources if Britain leaves the EU without a deal.

He has previously warned that a no deal Brexit would hit UK-EU cooperation and would have a “real impact” on protecting the public.

Yesterday Mr Wallace told the Today programme: “This morning I will meet the intelligence services and I will meet the police and all the people who protect us.

“They want us to get on with delivering a Brexit , they are professionals and they are looking after our safety.

If I were to look them in the eye and say should we just fall headlong into a collapse of government, into a collapse in Parliament they would just despair because we’re here to give them the support and resource they need in government and voting for the deal is the way we will continue to be able to do that and how we will break from Europe.”
