Question to the HM Treasury
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of customs checks on goods on UK ships travelling (1) from the EU to UK ports, and (2) from the UK to EU ports, following the UK's exit from the EU.
Answer (Lord Bates)
Future customs arrangements depend on the outcome of the negotiations. The Government remains clear that the UK’s future customs arrangements should be as frictionless as possible, ensuring that traffic continues to flow freely at all ports. HM Revenue and Customs has engaged with a large number of businesses and ports to understand what may impact them in future and to identify any customs challenges they may face.
