The UK government will delay a number of post-Brexit border controls due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, a minister has confirmed.
A written ministerial statement by the Brexit minister, David Frost, said the timetable for bringing in the “same controls on incoming goods from the European Union as on goods from the rest of the world” would be delayed beyond the plans set out in March.
