UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 19 JANUARY 2021
Centre for Brexit Studies Researcher David Hearne has discussed the protest that was held by fishing businesses in Westminster earlier this week, who are highlighting the post-Brexit export issues that they are facing.
The Researcher discussed what more needs to be done to support the industry throughout these issues.
The expert also discussed if UK based businesses were not prepared for the red tape that Brexit has caused, after British meat exporters also joined the protest, warning that their exports to Europe are being crippled by new customs red tape.
Since the start of the year, thousands of pounds worth of fresh produce has been impounded at European ports for not having the correct paperwork.
David also discussed how smaller companies, especially those who sell on online marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay, are dealing with the post-Brexit rules and regulations, and if they are being offered the support that they need.
