Amber Rudd Says Brexit Negotiations Could Mean New ‘Holiday Tax’ For British Holidaymakers

There has been speculation that such a scheme would add £50 to the cost of an average family holiday for Britons.

However, Rudd said that the UK could create a similar system in return.

According to ITV, she told BBC One’s The Andrew Marr show: “It’s a reminder that this is a two-way negotiation.

“The EU and the Commissioners may be considering alternatives – they will be considering their negotiations with us, just as we are considering it with them.”

She said that she though British people would be “surprised” at such measures.

“I don’t think it’s particularly desirable, but we don’t rule it out because we have to be allowed a free hand to give the best negotiation,” she added.
