Lords EU Committee to hear evidence on the future UK-EU trade in manufactured goods

On Monday 15 June 2020 the House of Lords EU Goods Sub-Committee will be hearing evidence from the automotive and aerospace sectors on how to facilitate future UK-EU trade in manufactured goods.

This session will be held remotely and streamed on Parliament TV.
At 10.30am the Committee will hear from:

  • Helen Foord, Head of Government Relations and Public Policy, Groupe PSA UK
  • Jill Adamson, Head of Financial Reporting and Tax, Alexander Dennis
  • Simon Brimble, Vice-President, Global Purchasing Supply Chain Management, Delphi Technologies
  • Paul Everitt, Chief Executive Officer, ADS.

Possible questions that may be asked by the Committee include:

  • How important are the UK-EU negotiations on rules of origin for your businesses? What would you like to see in the final agreement?
  • What specific regulatory provisions would you like to see in the UK-EU trade agreement? How important is the mutual recognition of conformity assessments?
  • Do you have concerns about the introduction of new UK-EU customs checks at the end of the transition period? What types of customs facilitations would you like to see?
  • Are there any unilateral measures that the UK could take to reduce non-tariff barriers to UK-EU trade? How effective would these be?

On Tuesday 26 May 2020 the Committee invited written contributions to this inquiry.
