Which? response to the Prime Minister’s trade speech

Sue Davies, Head of Consumer Protection, said:

“It’s encouraging that the Prime Minister has set out Britain’s long-term commitment to world-leading standards and protections for consumers.The government has to ensure that these principles are not undermined by future trade deals allowing food or products produced to inferior standards to enter the UK.

“The standards and rights that British consumers expect must not be on the negotiating table. It is also vital that important benefits such as return rights, mobile roaming and reciprocal healthcare arrangements enjoyed by UK and EU citizens remain in place in the future.”
