Thursday 5 July 2018 in Committee Room 1, Palace of Westminster
- Susan Morley, Director, Morley Consulting Training Limited;
- Joseph Owen, Associate Director, Institute for Government; and
- Sam Lowe, Research Fellow, Centre for European Reform.
- To what extent can technology be used to reduce customs border checks? Are there successful examples from elsewhere that could be applied in the UK?
- Trusted trader schemes have been raised as a way of decreasing checks at the border. To what extent could these schemes alleviate the administrative burden post-Brexit?
- What customs facilitation arrangements are currently in place between the EU and third countries that could be applicable to the UK if no comprehensive customs agreement was reached?
- The Government recently proposed a temporary customs arrangement that would come into force if no other agreement was reached with the EU. What impact would this have on businesses?
