Trinidad: TT braces for Brexit Govt to bring laws to protect trade with UK

THE Government will soon bring legislation to Parliament to enact a treaty signed between Cariforum and the UK to prevent any sudden imposition of tariffs if the UK leaves the European Union (EU).

Trade Minister Paula Gopee-Scoon told Newsday this yesterday at a function at Export TT in Port of Spain.

Her promised action came even as British politics descended into chaos. She assured the Government was keeping abreast of developments in the UK.

Yesterday, a cross-party alliance including 21 rebels from the ruling Conservative Party passed the first stage of a bill in the House of Commons to stop the UK leaving the EU without agreed terms (known as a “no-deal Brexit”), as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had promised for October 31.
