Seafood and Meat Exports to the EU

Inquiry

Delays at the UK/EU border have meant that seafood and meat exporters to the EU have reported losing money and trade since the end of the Brexit transition period on January 1st. In this inquiry the EFRA Committee is looking at what caused the delays; the impact of the new customs and other requirements on seafood and meat exports to the EU; and how the UK Government is, and should be, supporting them.
