Brexit trade arrangements could be a disaster for farming, Lords warn

3rd May 2017 / By Alistair Driver

The Government must agree transitional arrangements with the EU, in order to mitigate the potentially disastrous effects of leaving the union without a trade deal in place, a House of Lords committee has concluded.

In a comprehensive report on the implications of Brexit for agriculture, the Lords Energy and Environment committee warns that the Government and industry will need to overcome serious challenges, especially in the areas of trade and labour arrangements.

It highlighted the pig sector as being particularly vulnerable under certain post-Brexit trade scenarios.
