Unite Warning Ahead Of New Brexit Border Checks Launch

Unite is warning of EU border delays as increased Brexit border checks kick in (30 April) on plant and animal products arriving to the UK from the EU.

The checks will start with a ‘light touch’ according to Defra, with medium and high-risk goods that pose the greatest biosecurity risk being prioritised and then the gradual introduction of full check rates.

However, businesses and MPs have raised concerns that Defra has failed to give clear guidance on how the checks will work, with concerns they will increase import costs and create delays at the border.
