Government Must Maintain UK-EU Market Access.

The Road Haulage association calls on the government to maintain UK-EU market access after Brexit.

The call comes as the House of Lords EU Internal Market Sub-Committee has published its ‘Brexit: road, rail and maritime transport’ report.

The Sub-Committee urges the government to make its market access negotiating priorities clear and warns that demand for ECMT permits – should UK hauliers need them to operate in the EU – vastly outstrips supply.

RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett said: “The supply chain will grind to a halt if we can only fall back on a limited quota of permits for international haulage.

“It’s vital that we preserve the access we have now – the economy relies on it. The politicians need to make it happen.”

The RHA gave evidence to the Committee which features in the report.
