EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee
Report published 10 May 2018. Government response published 19 July 2018. Debated 25 April 2019.
The Committee found that even in the 'best case scenario', with no tariffs and few customs barriers, international rules would oblige the UK to conduct more customs and borders checks than is currently the case. If an agreement cannot be negotiated by the time the UK leaves the EU the increase in tariffs could lead to significant price rises for consumers, whilst the additional customs workload could choke the UK's ports and airports and significantly disrupt food deliveries.
