Defra minister George Eustice says the food and farming industry should not expect damaging exposure to sudden export trade tariffs post-Brexit.
“We are very clear we will be ready to have our plans in place for a new British agricultural policy when we leave the EU.”

Mr Eustice said he expected a slick transition between trade policies so that food producers were not faced with barriers to selling commodities overseas.
Speaking to gathered media at the Northern Farming Conference, the pro-Brexit MP said Defra was undertaking an “enormous” amount of work to draw up a post-Brexit British agricultural policy.
