Government’s shambolic trade policy damages British business

Reacting to the Government announcing a delay to import checks, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Trade Sarah Olney MP said: “The Government’s ‘independent trade policy’ is in shambles. Utterly unable to secure the UK’s vital imports, the only solution to the supply chain crisis they could cobble together is to kick the can down the road.

“British businesses and consumers need to have the certainty that their supply chains won’t get choked off and that they’ll continue to find all the products they need in the supermarket.

“The Conservative government must urgently explain how they’ll avoid damaging shortages and price rises when import checks do come into force.”
