UK passports to be manufactured in the UK

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Theresa May should explain to the British people why the new post-Brexit blue passport is set to be made in France.

The contract to manufacture the document is set to be awarded to Franco-Dutch firm Gemalto rather than De La Rue's Gateshead plant or any other UK manufacturer.

This decision is not coherent with the post Brexit views of the British people, the UK Passport is a symbol of our new found independence and makes a mockery of the system should it be manufactured anywhere else except the UK. 

We urge the Prime Minister or Home Secretary Amber Rudd to reconsider their stance.
