UK and Australia agree post-Brexit trade deal

Britain and Australia have agreed the first post-Brexit trade deal to be negotiated from scratch.

Downing Street declared that the tariff-free agreement would make products like whisky, cars and confectionery cheaper to sell.

But some farmers fear they could be undercut by cheaper imports and lower standards.

Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison was at 10 Downing Street to seal the deal with Boris Johnson.
