  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Leaked document suggests UK car industry may face tariffs – even with a Brexit trade deal – BBC News” – below is their description.

    Talks between the UK and the EU to try to agree a future trade deal are continuing and it’s now emerged that the UK’s car industry could be a loser. The BBC has seen a leaked document in which the UK’s chief negotiator, Lord Frost, concedes that one of the industry’s key demands – to treat foreign car parts used in the UK as British — won’t be met. That means some car makers could face export tariffs, even if there’s an overall trade deal with the EU. Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by economics editor Faisal Islam.
