    Currently our average tariff rate is roughly 3%. Nobody seems to be proposing raising that to any significant degree. Assuming that we’d put a 10% average tariff seems a bold assumption.

    Currently the vast bulk of our tariff collection goes to the EU coffers.

    It also bold to suggest that a free trade arrangement with the US would damage the UK economy whereas a free trade arrangement with the EU does not.

    3% for non-agricultural products, but dairy products are 35%, cars are 10%. Cars account for 11% of our exports to the EU. It might not be 10%, but it certainly won’t average out at 3%.
