Leaked document suggests UK car industry may face tariffs - even with a Brexit trade deal

BBC, 01 Oct 2020
Talks between the UK and the EU to try to agree a future trade deal are continuing and it's now emerged that the UK’s car industry could be a loser.

The BBC has seen a leaked document in which the UK's chief negotiator, Lord Frost, concedes that one of the industry's key demands - to treat foreign car parts used in the UK as British -- won't be met.

That means some car makers could face export tariffs, even if there’s an overall trade deal with the EU.
