News: Brexit 'no deal' technical papers published today
25 Brexit 'no deal' technical papers are being published today by the Government (55 more to follow in the next few weeks). Read this blog from Sustain chief executive Kath Dalmeny: A ‘no deal’ Brexit will indeed mean shortages – mainly of food and farming jobs, workers, transport and common sense
Read this statement from Sustain's sustainable farming coordinator Vicki Hird: Sustain response.
Among the first technical papers published are several dealing with farming-related issues:
- Trading with the EU if there's no Brexit deal
- Producing and processing organic food if there's no Brexit deal
- Developing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) if there's no Brexit deal
- Receiving rural development funding if there's no Brexit deal
- Farm payments if there's no Brexit deal
Read our round-up of responses to a 'no deal' Brexit from food, farming and fishing organisations.
Brexit: We stand at a cross-roads. When the UK leaves the European Union, will our leaders uphold good standards for our food, farming, fishing and trade deals? And will they agree a sensible deal with the EU? We need to make sure that they do!
