Michael Gove is expected to make an announcement on Friday in regards to border operations that will come into place after we leave the European Union on the 31st December 2020. The UK said it was going to introduce checks and controls on goods coming from the EU from the exit date, but that’s now being softened due to business concerns.
The Financial Times reported a government source saying: “We recognise the impact that coronavirus has had on UK businesses and as we take back control of our laws and our borders at the end of this year, we will take a pragmatic and flexible approach to help business adjust to the changes and opportunities of being outside the single market and the customs union.”
