A representative of the UK’s fashion industry, Tamara Cincik, outlines the challenges of working within the EU following the post-Brexit trade deal when she appears before MPs this week.
The session also hears from agent and promoter Craig Stanley and Bectu union leader Noel McClean on the impact of the trade deal on touring and live events, with some member states requiring visas or work permits.
The panel is a change to previously announced witnesses. Cabinet Office Minister Lord Frost and Culture Minister Caroline Dinenage MP, who were due to appear on Thursday 10 June, will now give evidence at a later date. The Committee is examining the impact of the Government’s failure to reach agreement with the EU to enable visa-free travel and reduce practical and financial barriers to British creatives, crews and vehicles working in the EU.
