The government has unveiled temporary tariffs on clothing products from developed countries in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Import tariffs of 8%-12% will be placed on clothing products produced in developed countries that would previously have been subject to no import charges, in the event that the UK exits the EU without a deal.

The number of clothes items potentially subject to tariffs has expanded from 97 to 140, with new items subject to tariffs including women’s blouses, trousers and jackets made of cotton or wool.
