Brexit questions, 3: How many trade deals has the UK signed in the last ten years? How long did each take to conclude, on average?
None, trade deals were an EU exclusive competence.
Jeez, this man……
Brexit questions, 5: What value of tariffs do we collect now on imports to the UK? Which countries give rise to the top 10 payments? Are we planning new trade deals with any of them? What will the impact on revenue be?
Tariffs are sent to Brussels. They come off the other amounts we must also send there.
Brexit questions, 11: How much will the cost to business be of having to manage multiple trade deals and tariff arrangements?
Not a lot. Large exporters already send to 50, 90 different jurisdictions. We’re adding one more, the EU.
International political economy my arse.
