Spending £1m on repainting PM's plane is a "colossal waste of taxpayers' money'


Spending £1m on repainting PM's plane is a "colossal waste of taxpayers' money'Layla Moran MP has reacted to the news that Boris Johnson is spending £900,000 of taxpayers' money on repainting his official plane in Union flag colours when the same money could be spent providing an extra £15 school meals voucher to 60,000 children.

Liberal Democrat leadership contender Layla Moran said:  "This is a colossal waste of taxpayers' money. The same money could be spent providing an extra £15 school meals voucher to 60,000 children.

"Boris Johnson has insulted our closest allies, scrapped the foreign aid department, and is ploughing ahead with a self-destructive no-deal Brexit. Repainting his plane won't undo the damage he's done to the UK's reputation abroad."
