HTA response to EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill progress

Published: 24 December 2019 - John King

The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) has issued a comment regarding the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

James Clark, director of Policy and Communications at the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA), said: “We welcome the progress of today’s EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill as the first step to meeting the Government’s commitment for the UK to leave the EU by 31 January 2020.


However, the hard work on delivering a viable and realistic trade deal with the EU in the short transition period until the end of 2020, will be challenging. With a significant amount of horticultural imports from EU countries and with the industry exporting a range of British grown products to other markets, it is crucial that there is an agreement to deliver free and frictionless trade.

"The HTA will continue to advise members on regulatory and policy trade developments and ensure the industry’s voice is heard by Government.”
