To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the level of tariff that would be introduced by the UK Global Tariff regime in the event of a no-deal Brexit on adhesive removal sprays for use with incontinence sheaths and stoma products; what assessment they have made of the impact of such a change on patients; and which other essential products for medical use will be subject to such tariffs.

Our ambition is to ensure there are no tariffs, fees, charges or quantitative restrictions on trade in goods between the United Kingdom and the European Union at the end of the transition period through a Free Trade Agreement. We therefore do not expect the UK Global Tariff to apply to EU imports. We are currently in an intense phase of negotiations with the EU and we are working hard to achieve that.
