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

WTO has a set of rules for deciding the MAXIMUM tariff that can be applied to particular imports from a particular country.

There is no obligation to charge the maximum value.

Besides I seem to remember joining the Common Market resulted in an increase in food prices. Losing the EU restrictions on imports from outside the EU should result in cheaper food prices.
