Brexit LIVE: Labour demands Parliament recall after no-deal papers released

Helen Dickinson, chief government of the British Retail Consortium, stated the recordsdata verify that the worth of meals will rise and availability lower. 

“The Yellowhammer doc confirms what retailers have been saying for the final three years – recent meals availability will lower, shopper selection will lower, and costs will rise. This is not good for the British public and this is not good for British retailers.

“A no-deal Brexit in November represents the worst attainable timing for the retail business and the customers it serves. Warehousing availability might be restricted as retailers put together for Black Friday and Christmas, many recent fruit and greens might be out of season within the

UK, and imports might be hampered by disruption by the Channel Straits that might scale back move by as much as 60 per cent for as much as three months.

“While retailers are doing all they will to organize for a no-deal Brexit, it’s unimaginable to utterly mitigate the detrimental affect it could have – one thing the Government itself has acknowledged.

“The truth stays {that a} damaging, no-deal Brexit is in no-one’s pursuits and it’s important {that a} answer is discovered, and quick, that ensures frictionless tariff-free commerce with the EU after our departure.”
