East Midlands MEP Jonathan Bullock said he was disappointed the new post-Brexit passports may not be made in the UK.
The British firm, which has made the UK’s passports for ten years, wants answers from the Government on reports it is set to award the contract for the new blue passports to a Franco-Dutch company.
Mr Bullock said: “The new blue passport is one symbol of us voting to leave the EU. It is disappointing they look likely to be made abroad and they should be made in this country for security reasons.
“Of course, this also means the loss of business to the current makers of the passports – a British company. I hope the Government will look at this again.”
