Andrew Bridgen questions the Prime Minister about the Chequers proposals and the mutual recognition of standards

9th July 2018

Andrew Bridgen questions the Prime Minister about her Chequers proposals and asks if they would prevent the mutual recognition of standards and therefore effectively rule out free trade agreements.

Will my right hon. Friend confirm that her Chequers proposals would prevent the mutual recognition of standards, even with highly developed countries such as the United States, Australia and New Zealand, effectively ruling out free trade agreements?

The proposals would not prevent free trade agreements with those countries, but there is a challenge for us in relation to the United States and standards. We have always supported a single standards model, but the United States has a multiple standards approach, so that would be an issue. However, this deal enables us to sign trade deals around the world.
