A taste of the fallout from Brexit

 

Sir, – With the prospect of a UK-US trade deal likely resulting in the flooding of the UK with US-produced GM food products, chlorine-washed chicken and hormone-laden beef, surely any “Ireland-UK friendly” Brexit deal will mean that we are also vulnerable to exposure to these products?

I can think of a multitude of UK-based food outlets in Ireland where such exposure is not only a risk but a likelihood; and wonder what the Government is doing to safeguard against such a prospect? – Yours, etc,
