Downing Street sets out some details of new Brexit customs plan

The proposed new customs option, the “facilitated customs arrangement”, should, in theory, allow the UK to set its own tariffs, and technology will help to facilitate where the goods will end up and whether EU or UK tariffs shall be paid.

The details come as Theresa May and Angela Merkel prepare to discuss the progress of Brexit negotiations when they hold talks in Berlin later.

BBC News  summarises the proposal in greater depth, alongside helping to explain misunderstood ‘Brexit jargon’.

We’ll update you on the government’s stance regarding the customs agreement next week.
