The Government has consistently raised this issue with the European Commission, including most recently at the third TCA Trade Specialised Committee on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures on 11 October 2023. We remain committed to finding a solution that will allow a resumption in trade in seed potatoes between Great Britain and the European Union.
