Brexit LIVE: City of London boss issues emergency plea as he urges immediate U-turn | Politics | News

Changes to post-Brexit immigration rules could cause more disruption to supply chains, the International Road Transport Union (IRU) said.

From Friday, EU nationals will need a passport to enter the UK and EU ID cards will no longer be accepted.

Raluca Marian, IRU EU Advocacy Director said: “Aside from not seeing the real benefits of adding this layer of bureaucracy, and potentially affecting already difficult border freight flows post Brexit, we are also concerned that passports are generally more expensive than ID cards.

“UK authorities need to implement the change from Friday respecting professional drivers, without unnecessary bureaucracy or causing border or supply chain disruptions that would compound the serious supply chain issues already being seen in the UK due to driver shortages.”
