To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, whether the devolved Administrations (a) were consulted by his Department and (b) consented to the decision to extend the delay on EU trade import controls beyond October 2021.
7 October 2021
I refer the hon. Member to the Written Statement of 14th of September, which sets out the reasons for the change to the timetable for introducing border import controls on goods from the EU.
The Government is working closely with the Devolved Administrations on the delay to the introduction of controls, especially on controls and checks on Sanitary and Phytosanitary goods which are a devolved matter.
