UIN 157026, tabled on 23 February 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on providing financial support to UK haulage firms to set up bases in the EU in response to the introduction of haulage movement restrictions under the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

1 March 2021

The Department for Transport has regular discussions with colleagues across Whitehall on this issue, as well as direct engagement with the road haulage sector to help them adapt to the new rules under the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA). It is not, however, a matter for the Department for Transport to provide assistance or guidance to businesses to establish offices outside the UK.
