star this property answer text <p>In the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal, there would be a number of tools available to help mitigate adverse impacts for the food and drink industry, as well as for consumers and producers. These tools could include lowering applied tariffs on certain goods, alongside tariff rate suspensions and opening up autonomous tariff rate quotas.</p><p> </p><p>Different combinations of these tools would have different impacts on the food and drink industry, as would different degrees of tariff reduction. In addition, the competitiveness of the domestic industry is heavily affected by a number of other factors, including commodity prices, exchange rates and oil prices. These drivers will continue to apply when we leave the EU, regardless of tariff rates.</p><p> </p> more like this

In December 2017, the Government published the Draft Animal Welfare (Sentencing and Recognition of Sentience) Bill and ran a public consultation on the draft Bill. The House of Commons' Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA) Select Committee also undertook pre-legislative scrutiny of the draft Bill and Defra responded to EFRA’s report in March 2018. In August 2018, Defra published a summary of responses to the public consultation and since then Defra has continued to engage closely with stakeholders to further refine the Government's proposals on sentience.</p> more like this
