Jonathan Djanogly highlights importance to businesses of easy customs clearance post-Brexit

19th March 2018

Following the Treasury response to the Urgent Question on customs clearance arrangements at UK ports after the UK leaves the European Union, Jonathan Djanogly highlights the importance to businesses of easy border crossing and no EU tariffs.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)
People are talking about the customs union, a customs union, a customs partnership and, as the Prime Minister put it, a hopeful customs arrangement, but will my right hon. Friend accept that as far as businesses are concerned they do not really care what it is called as long as they do not have 10-mile queues at the border, they are not paying EU tariffs and they are not being clogged up with more bureaucracy and red tape?

Mel Stride
My hon. Friend is absolutely right. What matters to business is that we keep the borders moving, and I have explained in my responses to many questions this afternoon exactly how we will approach that.
