star this property answer text <p>This Government shares concerns about deforestation in the Amazon and during my recent visit to Brazil, I raised the UK’s commitment to environmental protection and offered support to Brazil in the transition to renewable energy and a lower carbon economy. We are working in partnership with Brazilian businesses, farmers and State governments to support sustainable development for the benefit of Brazilian communities and ecosystems, investing over £150million of climate finance in forest programmes across the country. This includes the extra £10 million recently announced by the Prime Minister.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK will implement a temporary tariff for up to 12 months. The Government held informal conversations specifically in relation to tariff policy throughout the summer of 2018 with businesses, including the automotive sector. The market sensitivities around the policy and ongoing EU negotiations have meant a formal consultation with business was not possible. However, a full consultation and review on a permanent approach would be undertaken during the 12 months.</p> more like this

The data, which includes export values for some licences, currently provides details of licences up to 30 June 2018. Information covering the period 1 July to 30 September 2018 will be published in January 2018.</p><p>However, licences granted are not a measure of sales or exports shipped in a given period as they are generally valid for between two and five years. Licensing data only provides a partial indication of sales as exporters only declare export values for a subsection of licences (Standard Individual Export Licences). Some licences expire before they are used and in these circumstances exporters must submit a further application, which can result in a significant element of double counting.</p>

star this property answer text <p>On leaving the EU, the Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Act will enable the Government to put in place a UK trade preferences scheme for developing countries. This will provide the same level of access as the current EU trade preference scheme meaning continued duty-free, quota-free access for Least Developed Countries which are part of the Economic Community of West African states (ECOWAS) and generous tariff reductions for other ECOWAS countries.</p><p> </p><p>In the absence of this regional agreement, EU ‘stepping stone’ Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana have been provisionally applied since 2016. As the UK exits the EU, we aim to replicate the effects of these EPAs to avoid trade disruption with these countries. We have been in dialogue with both Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana to achieve this continuity.</p><p> </p><p>Currently there is no agreement in force between the EU and the 16 West Africa States, the Economic Community of West African states (ECOWAS). Should this change, the UK would look to transition the agreement.</p>
