Question to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact on supplies of COVID-19 vaccines to the UK in the event of the UK's departure from the EU without a deal.
The UK has put in place a number of measures to facilitate trade with the EU beyond the end of the transition period and to avoid any adverse impact to vaccine supply beyond 1 January 2021.
The Government has worked with COVID-19 vaccine suppliers to support them with robust contingency plans.
If necessary, we will use alternative supply routes and Government procured freight capacity, in line with current Government advice.
