Finance Minister Simon Clarke said that Britain’s exit from the European Union
“Allows us to get rid of a load of red tape – it’s already been a huge success”.

The claims come despite huge queues of lorries in Dover as drivers get caught up in red tape, and a new survey shows most British exporters are struggling with customs controls.

A survey by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) found that almost 60 percent of exporters reported difficulties trading with the EU – up from 49 percent in January 2021.

The business organization called on the government to take “urgent action” to reduce trade barriers with Europe on the second anniversary of Britain’s departure from the bloc.

Although the BCC survey results relate to November 2021, the business body said the images of lorries parked near Dover provided a “clear illustration” of additional problems with trade as full customs controls were introduced on January 1.

William Bean, head of trade policy at the BCC, said: “Dover’s problem at the moment appears to be linked to food exports across the Channel.”

He added –

“Like many issues this appears to depend on a different interpretation of how trade arrangements work after leaving the EU.”

The extra time is on codes required for the government’s new Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS) system and other export paperwork.

Although export checks have been in place since last January, companies had 60 days to fill customs forms after export. But from January 1, the forms have to be completed in full – putting pressure on GVMS and customs agents at the border.

Additional red tape and form-of-origin rules required for imports from the EU into the UK from 1 January 2022 have also caused long delays on the French side in Calais.

The BCC called on both London and Brussels to streamline some of the red tape, suggesting they could “eliminate or greatly reduce” the complexity of export health certificates required for food exporters.

On Monday, Mr Johnson claimed the government’s “Brexit Frees” bill – which aims to make it easier to remove or modify EU regulations copied into UK law – would encourage investment. .

“We’re not going to split for the sake of it, but we’re going to make sure it’s the number one place to do business and invest in that we have,” he told broadcasters during a visit to Tilbury Docks. It’s because of freedoms.”

Meanwhile, Mr Clarke told LBC: “Brexit has actually allowed us to have faster vaccinations, it’s allowed us to end free movement, it’s allowed us to start free trade negotiations. Granted, it’s allowed us to get rid of a load of red tape. It’s already been a huge success.”

A booklet celebrating the “benefits of Brexit” will be released this week to mark the two-year anniversary of Britain leaving the European Union.
