Brexit news latest – Government blasted in soy sauce row as Gove hits out at Wales over calls to DROP fishing demands

3 weeks ago 10

THE government has been accused of "exaggerations and mistruths" in a row over soy sauce.

The Department of International Trade tweeted on Tuesday night that the salty sauce will be "made cheaper thanks to our trade deal with Japan".

But trade experts waded in and pointed out the agreement would only prevent the condiment from getting more expensive under a no-deal Brexit than it currently is.

This comes as Michael Gove hit out at Wales over calls for the UK to drop Brexit fishing demands.

He was told the UK should be more "flexible" during discussions on fishing rights and state aid.

In a letter to Jeremy Miles, Wales' Minister for European Transition, Mr Gove wrote: "I am afraid we strongly disagree with your premise that we should `back down' on fisheries.

"The UK Government's view is that in all circumstances, the UK must be an independent coastal state, no longer be bound by the Common Fisheries Policy."
