star this property answer text <p>On 28 February we published further proposals on transparency and scrutiny of FTAs. During negotiations for future free trade agreements we will publish and lay before Parliament a Round Report following each substantive round of negotiations. This Round Report will also be published online in an accessible format. We will also publish an Annual Trade Report covering progress across the full programme of negotiations. We announced our intention to work closely with a parliamentary committee to put in place measures to ensure effective parliamentary scrutiny throughout the process.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside our regular engagement with stakeholders, we have set up the Strategic Trade Advisory Group, which was recently announced. Another formal engagement mechanism we are setting up is Expert Trade Advisory Groups. Both of these mechanisms are designed to seek expert insight on strategic trade policy issues, including future trade agreements. These groups will represent a variety of interests, including representatives of trade unions and NGOs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK will implement a temporary tariff: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/check-temporary-rates-of-customs-duty-on-imports-after-eu-exit" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/check-temporary-rates-of-customs-duty-on-imports-after-eu-exit</a>.</p><p> </p><p>We expect that the EU’s most favoured nation (MFN) tariff regime will apply to UK exports in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, and there is no indication that the EU will modify its tariff regime as a result of our exit.</p><p> </p><p>This decision seeks to ensure that UK importers and consumers do not face potential disruption or price rises that a fully reciprocal tariff policy would create.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring the benefits of existing EU trade agreements are maintained, providing a smooth transition as we leave the EU. The best way to provide that continuity and stability is for the UK to leave the European Union with a negotiated deal so that the UK can remain covered by all of these agreements during the proposed Implementation Period.</p><p> </p><p>Nevertheless, the Government is working to have bilateral agreements in place ready for when they are needed, whether that is in the event of no deal, or after the proposed Implementation Period. We have made good progress signing trade continuity agreements, most recently with Iceland and Norway. Trade with countries where agreements have already been signed or finalised accounts for more than half of the UK’s trade with countries for which the UK is seeking continuity.</p><p> </p><p>Many discussions with other countries are at an advanced stage. As with all such discussions, they tend to go down to the wire, and we would expect nothing less from these agreements. Each of the UK’s trade partners will have made an assessment of the likelihood of a no deal scenario, and factored in their own domestic situations, when approaching discussions of continuity with the UK.</p>
