FTA repeats call to back Brexit deal

The Freight Transport Association has repeated its call to MPs to back the Brexit withdrawal agreement when is comes to the vote on 11th December, arguing that a no-deal Brexit would lead to drastic restrictions on road haulage, as well as new customs declarations, duty payments, conformity checks and other inspections at the EU border.

European policy manager Sarah Laouadi said: “To make sure the country has the goods and services it needs, the Withdrawal Agreement must be ratified by MPs on 11th December, to provide a Transition Period in which to negotiate a new free trade agreement and continue the frictionless arrangements we currently operate under.  A no deal Brexit will dramatically hinder trade, and bringing Britain’s trade to a halt is not an option.”
