Concerns over UK delays
London: Britain may have left it too late for businesses to prepare properly for the end of free movement of goods to and from the European Union, Parliament’s treasury committee said yesterday.
The committee has written to Finance Minister Rishi Sunak about their concerns over delays setting up computer systems that allow businesses to handle new customs requirements that come into force on January 1.
‘‘I’ve asked the Chancellor to respond to our concerns as a matter of urgency,’’ chairman Mel Stride said. — Reuters
