Ten questions the UK government needs to answer to enable businesses to prepare for the end of post-Brexit transitionJuly 29, 2020

We are now less than 6 months away from the end of the transition period. Our trading companies are already overloaded pushing their businesses through the COVID-19 crisis. It has never been more important that they know what they need to prepare for in the coming months. Having extensively researched the ﬁeld, we feel that clarity is needed over new administrative requirements and border procedures, many of which are not dependent on whether the future relationship negotiations end without an agreement or with the kind of Free Trade Agreement – without extensive regulatory alignment – envisaged by the government. Whichever option occurs will require major change for companies who import or export to Europe.

The ECHR and the HRA has long been divisive in the Conservative Party. Successive Conservative manifestos have suggested that the HRA should be scrapped or amended. The paper explores this issue and the implications for the UK.
The ECHR is substantially the product of UK legal and political thinking and derived from UK traditions and concepts of liberty and democracy. It’s creation and development in its early years was supported by successive Conservative Governments in the 1950s and 60s.
