Issue #85 - 5th February 2018
Latest: Trade Bill 2017-19
During the second reading in Parliament on Tuesday 9th January, International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox  explain how the government’s Trade Bill will benefit businesses and consumers, as the UK progresses towards leaving the EU and shapes its own trade policy for the first time in 40 years.

The bill will provide continuity and stability for businesses and consumers by creating the powers necessary to replicate existing EU trade arrangements in UK law. It will also establish a Trade Remedies Authority to take back powers from the EU to protect UK industry from unfair and injurious trading practices, such as dumping. This comes after the Treasury’s Customs Bill received its second reading on Monday 8th January, which will allow the government to create a standalone customs regime and amend the VAT and excise regimes. Together the bills will deliver the necessary powers for the UK to be prepared from day one of leaving the EU.
