To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of increased restrictions on road haulage between the UK and the EU on the music sector in the event of a no deal scenario.

This government has been clear that we do not want exit with EU on the 29th March 2019 without a deal. Nevertheless, the government will continue to do the responsible thing and prepare for all eventualities.

As part of these preparations, the Department for Digital Culture, Media and Sport has held a series of ministerial roundtables with the creative sector on the impacts of the UK’s exit from the EU, which have been attended by representatives from the music industry, regarding touring musicians and crews in particular. The department will continue to build on this engagement with the sector and with other government departments as we prepare for exit to ensure that the impacts and opportunities of EU exit for the music sector is understood.

On 24th September 2018, to help businesses prepare for the key issues that were raised in these discussions, we published a technical notice entitled ‘Commercial road haulage in the EU if there’s no Brexit deal’.
