The government has published its white paper on the future UK-EU relationship.  The government sets out its proposals to build a new relationship that works for both the UK and the EU.

It is particularly relevant to the agriculture and rural land sector as the government's proposal is to establish a free trade area for goods, including agri-food.  The government proposes that the UK and EU would maintain a common rule book for goods including agri-food.  The hope is that this would avoid friction at the border, protect jobs and livelihoods in farming.
