WATCH: UK politician reacts to 'embarrassing' news that post-Brexit passports to be made in France

The UK Government has been urged to explain to British workers why the new post-Brexit blue passport will reportedly be made abroad. It comes after current British manufacturer De La Rue said the contract to manufacture the document, which Brexiteers see as a symbol of the UK's regained independence, is set to be awarded to Franco-Dutch firm Gemalto. Culture Secretary Matt Hancock has said a final decision has not yet been made.
