Failure to seal EU free trade deal will mean hike, say peers

“Shoppers face a significant rise in food prices if the government fails to secure a free trade deal with the European Union, peers have warned” writes Sarah Butler for theguardian.com. Peers said it was “inconceivable” that Brexit would have no impact on EU food imports to the UK, whatever the structure of a deal. Half the UK’s food is imported, with 30% from from the EU, 11% from countries with EU trade deals and the rest from other foreign sources.The government has some important choices to make.” The report suggested UK ports would be choked up with delays if EU food imports are subject to the same border checks as other imported produce.
