Rules of Origin commitments exist in all Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and my Hon. Friend will understand thatonHon United Kingdom-EU discussions on Rules of Origin provisions after the end of the transition period are ongoing.

Nonetheless, as these discussions progress, we remain committed to working with businesses and traders to make sure that the United Kingdom-EU FTA reflects our interests and priorities as far as is possible, including modern Rules of Origin that are clear, simple and facilitate trade.
