(Reuters) – Downing Street has delayed an announcement on no-deal Brexit tariffs to avoid backlash from lawmakers so that the report comes after the next Brexit vote in parliament, the Sun newspaper reported.
The report, which was to contain details of import duties on food and ceramics, will now be released only “next Thursday or Friday,” the newspaper said. The delay has been caused due to the government’s worry about how the announcement will be viewed by lawmakers, the newspaper said, citing “one insider.”
