Re: Food imports which may see a 20% import duty after Brexit

Worry not, DEFRA estimates that global commodities will cost 11% more when imported to the UK and that will translate into a rise for consumers of 2.9%.

Apparently there's a lot of margin on those lettuces which food producers will be only too happy to soak up for us.
