To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the effect on small and medium-sized enterprises of the requirement to obtain documents to transport equipment between the UK and EU Member States when the UK leaves the EU.
Answer (Mel Stride)
The precise future arrangements for transporting equipment between the UK and EU Members States following EU Exit will be dependent on the outcome of the negotiations. The Government is working hard to ensure that businesses have the necessary support and guidance structures in place to be ready for future customs arrangements. To this end, the Government is engaging with businesses, including small and medium-sized enterprises, in every sector and region of the UK economy to assess the effect of EU Exit on them.
