Answered on: 18 December 2017

My Department has received a range of representations on the future sanitary rules for trade with the EU in meat and poultry products. Some of these representations have recognised the benefits of the UK having some form of veterinary equivalence with the EU. The Government is working to achieve the freest possible trade between the UK and the EU as part of our future relationship, and we will continue to work closely with stakeholders as part of this.
