Tory Brexit Government plans will tear up EU commitment to eradicate shock phone bills

British tourists heading to the continent this summer will no longer face the sting of a costly phone bill after using their phone abroad.

Lib Dem MEP Catherine Bearder said:

“Cheaper roaming fees are a real bonus of our EU membership, 28 countries working together have delivered a great deal for consumers and Brits have been key to these decisions.

“From booking an Uber in Rome, to searching for a backstreet cafe in Paris, the fear of huge bills after a trip abroad will soon be a thing of the past.

“Sadly the Tory government’s plan to pull us out of the Single Market means Brits may not get to enjoy these benefits for very long.”
