Chlorinated chicken could be an issue in UK-US trade relations

Brexit latest- Former UK Trade Secretary calls for fast UK US deal after divorce from EU

Brexit latest- Former UK Trade Secretary calls for fast UK US deal after divorce from EU

"For the most advanced economies like the United States, or the UK, where nearly 80 percent of our economic activity is services-based, we can afford to seek closer partnerships with those whose demands complement our output, not necessarily those who are geographically proximate", he added.

"The U.K. poultry meat industry stands committed to feeding the nation with nutritious food and any compromise on standards will not be tolerated".

Donald Trump said that he would back a "very, very big" trade deal between the two countries.

Under that arrangement, it would only be able to sign the deal at whatever point in that three-year period it was no longer covered by the terms of the EU's Customs Union trade area.

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is meeting his British counterpart Liam Fox for the US-UK Trade and Investment Working Group. Hormone-treated beef and poultry processed with chlorine are two common symbols used by activists of of lower United States food safety standards.

Fox said he will release a report on July 25 that details the USA -U.K. trade relationship in every US congressional district. I think we will fund a way of avoiding tariffs in the future. It's considered likely that the US would demand Britain open up its market to chlorine-washed chicken as part of any trade deal, and BuzzFeed reported back in February that the American farming lobby was pushing for it.

The injured included Arteaga, who was treated by paramedics in the street as blood poured down his face. He is seen in a hospital bed with bandages on his face and swollen lips.

Dr Fox is reported to have said the Americans have been eating chlorinated chicken perfectly safely for years and that a meaningful trade deal must include agriculture.

Free market thinktank the Adam Smith Institute warned in a report published overnight that access to the U.S. poultry market was likely to be a key sticking point in thrashing out an agreement with the US. "Therefore we have a strong foundation on which to build".

He dismissed the chicken issue as "a detail in the very end stage of one sector of a potential free trade agreement". "We won't accept a race to the bottom on standards". "We are determined to get a good Brexit deal for Britain and we have been absolutely clear we will maintain our world-leading animal welfare standards".

The warning comes amid splits in the Cabinet over whether the USA should be allowed to sell chlorine-washed chickens in the United Kingdom after Brexit - something now banned under European Union rules.

"The choice of recipe is up to him, but one serving suggestion might be Chlorination Chicken".
