Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Anguilla was discussed in Parliament at some length back in early 2017, I think. It has specific problems. There is no airport on the island, so it has 'piggy-backed' off Princess Julianna International Airport, in Sint Maarten, which is in the territory of the Netherlands. It then crosses a border into French Saint Martin. (There is an airport on the French side of the island, in the French Collectivity of Saint Martin, called Aéroport de Grand Case or L'Espérance Airport, but this is used for regional flights.)
From there, goods are transported by ship to Anguilla itself, so it will be crossing a second border.
