Dear Prime Minister's Office,
Background: Prior to the 2019 general election Boris Johnson promised the UK he had an 'oven-ready' Brexit deal that was ready to go.
FoI request: Please kindly provide records which show why Boris Johnson ripped up the above deal after it was agreed and signed by him and EU.
Source for public reference:
"Appearing before Michael Gove at the despatch box, Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi said: “The prime minister promised the nation an oven-ready deal and it was avowedly the easiest trade deal in history to negotiate. Instead, this Conservative government have shown that they’re happy to rip up an agreement only months after signing it, thereby breaking international law, and now they’re hurtling us towards a disastrous no-deal Brexit."
