To ask the Secretary of State Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to page 79 of the Government's No-Deal Readiness report, what assessment she has made of the length of time for which the UK would provide temporary continuity in goods regulation in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
The Government has taken the decision, in the event that we leave the EU without a deal, to provide as much continuity as possible for businesses and consumers. Different goods are regulated in different ways, in part reflecting the different levels of risk they pose to consumers and the environment. The continuity period for each reflects this.
Where an end date hasn’t been set already, we have committed to engaging industry before determining the end point for ongoing acceptance of goods made against EU regulations.
