Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Lord Lilley:

    To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the costs to businesses of (1) completing movement certificates, and (2) having those certificates stamped at borders, if the UK is in a customs union with the EU after Brexit.

    Lord Young of Cookham:

    The Government is seeking a new customs arrangement that provides the most frictionless trade possible in goods between the UK and the EU.

    The cost to businesses of any information requirements would depend on the precise nature of the arrangement.
