Britain Delays Post-Brexit Border Checks

Britain on Tuesday said it would push back its implementation of full post-Brexit borders checks on goods from the European Union, as the pandemic, red tape and new immigration rules fuel supply problems, Euractiv.com reports.

Plans to introduce full controlshad been due from next month, but it would now start from January 2022 under a “pragmatic new timetable”, according to the government.

Britain will still introduce full customs declarations and controls on 1 January 2022, as planned.

The pandemic and Brexit have left Britain short of some 90,000 truck drivers (many of whom returned to eastern Europe), causing supply chain problems, particularly in the food and drink sector.
