Brussels attacks Liam Fox’s ‘ignorant’ remarks on chlorinated chicken

Senior EU figures have hit back at an “ignorant and indigestible” claim by UK trade secretary Liam Fox that allowing imports of chlorinated chicken from the US is an insignificant detail.

European officials said Mr Fox has failed to grasp the implications of continuing post-Brexit trade with the EU where chlorine-washed chicken is banned.

Mr Fox has dismissed the row as a minor detail of trade negotiations that have not yet even formally begun, but critics said it highlighted the complexity of obstacles in negotiations.
