Seafood and meat producers questioned on teething problems at the border

25 February 2021

The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee examines the experience of seafood and meat producers, in dealing with the new border paperwork and physical checks and the impact on their businesses. The Committee addresses how far the situation has changed since January 1 and whether the problems were just teething problems, or if exporters face longer-term issues, and if so what support the Government should be providing them.
