Budget Resolution — Customs Duties — Goods from the European Union — 20 Nov 2017 at 21:03
The majority of MPs voted for goods from the European Union to be subject to new customs duties.
MPs were considering a motion stating:
- (a) provision may be made imposing and regulating a duty of customs chargeable by reference to the importation of goods into the United Kingdom,
- (b) provision may be made conferring power to impose and regulate a duty of customs chargeable by reference to the export of goods from the United Kingdom,
- (c) other provision may be made in relation to any duty of customs in connection with the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, and
- (d) provision may be made dealing with subordinate matters incidental to any provision within any of paragraphs (a) to (c).
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- in paragraph (a), after “goods”, insert
- “other than goods originating from the European Union”.
