Explain which regulation the modifications in regulation 9(2) relate to.
2.The Treasury’s response to the Committee’s point is as follows.
3.The Treasury regrets that the modifications in regulation 9(2) of the Customs (Tariff-free Access for Goods from British Overseas Territories) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 (S.I. 2020/1434) were included in the Regulations in error. They relate to a version of regulation 3 that was removed from the draft Regulations at the last minute without the necessary consequential amendment to the modifications in regulation 9 also being made.
4.The Treasury apologises for this error and undertakes to amend the Regulations at the earliest opportunity to correct it.
