To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether her Department has made an assessment of the effect of changes in the UK's trading relationships with Australia’s main export markets on the potential volume of exports to the UK under a tariff-free trade agreement between the UK and Australia.
7 June 2021
The scoping assessment for a UK-Australia agreement, published back in June 2020, assessed the potential impact on Australian exports to the UK under an illustrative scenario of a tariff-free trade agreement between the UK and Australia. It does not include an assessment of the effects of changes to the UK’s trading relationship with Australia’s main export markets.
Following the conclusion of negotiations, a full impact assessment will be published prior to implementation.
