On 12 July 2018, the UK Government published its long-promised White Paper – The Future Relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union. The UK Brexit Secretary, Dominic Raab, explained that the White Paper confirmed that the UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019 ‘forging a new way in the world outside the Single Market, outside the Customs Union.’ The paper proposes a free trade agreement, supported by a ‘common rulebook’, aiming to achieve ‘frictionless trade’ between the UK and the EU which would obviate the need for the backstop solution to be used. They propose a ‘Facilitated Customs Arrangement’, in order to “remove the need for routine customs checks and controls between the UK and the EU”. N/A DOWNLOAD
