The EU External Affairs Sub-Committee of the House of Lords EU Select Committee published a report Brexit: trade in goods on the 14 March 2017.
The report examined the implications of Brexit for the UK’s trade in goods with the EU. The report considered the potential impact of Brexit on trade in six goods sectors: chemicals and pharmaceuticals, capital goods and machinery, food and beverages, oil and petroleum, automotive and aerospace and defence.
+ The manufacturing and primary commodities sectors are important employers, particularly outside the South East of England, and goods make up the bulk of the UK’s trade. Ensuring that these industries do not face additional barriers to trade will be essential to driving growth across the UK, as envisaged in the Government’s industrial strategy.
