To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the effect on the amount of customs revenue accruing to the public purse of (a) leaving the EU, (b) leaving the EU without a deal and (b) the Department for Transport’s decision to prioritise speed of goods processing over revenue collection at the border.

The amount of customs revenue collected will be dependent on the rates of import duty set and our relationship with the EU. In the event of “no deal” the Government will publish new UK duty rates, in due course, before we leave the EU.
