Exit decs needed for Ulster-UK cargo, says Brexit minister

[ October 22, 2019   //   ]

Exit summary declarations will be needed for goods being exported from Northern Ireland to the UK mainland under the government’s latest plans, Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay has told the Lords Exiting the EU committee, the BBC reports. It would appear to contradict earlier government assurances that the trade would be “unfettered”.

In a tweet, DUP MP Sammy Wilson said it was a clear breach of UK Government commitment in Joint Report of 2017 to allow unfettered access to GB market for NI businesses. “How can any Conservative & Unionist MP argue this does not represent a border in the Irish Sea?”
