Committee examines Government proposals for post-transition period border operations

4 September 2020

The Committee on the Future Relationship with the European Union returns on Wednesday 9 September with a virtual evidence session, examining the operation of the UK-EU border after the end of the post-Brexit transition period.

Movement of goods

In July, the UK Government published its proposals for how the border with the European Union will function from 1 January 2021, with new controls on the movement of goods to be introduced in three stages up until 1 July 2021.

Purpose of the session

In this session, the Committee will examine how the Government’s plans compare with current border operations, the implications of the proposals for businesses moving goods from the UK to the EU and vice versa, and the preparations required ahead of 1 January.


Wednesday 9 September 2020

At 9.30pm:

  • Richard Burnett, Chief Executive, Road Haulage Association

  • Robert Hardy, Founder, Customs Clearance Consortium

  • Dr Anna Jerzewska, Independent Customs and Trade Consultant
