To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Fairhead on 16 April (HL15128), who decides which postcodes should be included in the list to be hosted on gov.uk; and whether those postcodes are checked for accuracy to ensure that products are labelled correctly.

In line with the Government’s approach of ensuring continuity as we leave the EU, the list of postcodes hosted on gov.uk will replicate – at the point at which the EU-Israel agreements cease to apply to the UK and, thus, the UK-Israel agreement is brought into force – the EU’s list of postcodes. This list is currently available on the EU Commission’s website: https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/sites/taxation/files/technical_arrangement_postal_codes_2018_en.pdf.

As referenced in my Written Answer on 16 April (HL15128), tariff preferences and labelling requirements will be implemented by UK customs authorities.
