  • No-deal Brexit: UK-made cars will not be ‘valid for sale’ in EU, government document admits: Vehicles made in the UK could no longer be sold in the EU if Britain crashes out without a deal, a shock government document admits. EU “type-approval” would no longer be granted to prove the vehicles comply with safety and environmental standards, it warned. It was issued just two days after the boss of Jaguar Land Rover attacked Theresa May’s Brexit strategy, warning that that tens of thousands of jobs were being put at risk. Manufacturers would need to seek approval from an authority in an EU member state – if such an agreement could be struck. The document says that, if there is a no-deal Brexit, the government would act unilaterally to ensure EU-made cars could still be bought in this country, by recognising approvals. (Independent)
