Trade in services is not subject to tariffs. However, trade in services may be subject to a number of regulatory restrictions that increase the costs associated with trade in services. But they have other agreements, on trade and other issues: international evidence indicates that free trade agreements can reduce trade and investment costs by removing tariffs and reducing non-tariff measures (MNs) and regulatory restrictions on trade in services. The analysis of this scoping assessment is based on solid evidence and the best tools available to assess the impact of a free trade agreement. The results should be interpreted with caution because of the inherent uncertainty and not be seen as economic forecasts for the UK economy. Thirteen NGOs considered trade in services to be a priority, and several called for smooth trade in services. Some NGOs have called for the inclusion of MRPQs in a section of services for a potential free trade agreement between Britain and Australia, including quotas and licences. Some NGOs saw the greatest opportunity to increase trade in services, with one saying that the difference in time zones is advantageous, as services and assistance can be provided by different offices and across time zones, which stimulates the globalised service sector. The NGOs also stated that the UK was at the forefront of financial services and called for the UK`s high regulatory requirements to be protected. Thirteen NGOs expressed concern about a number of service-related issues, including ISDS and the lack of transparency in possible negotiations. One NGO expressed concern about the limited role of decentralized administrations, whereby future trade agreements could address decentralized issues. Respondents also spoke about the importance of protecting public services, including the NHS. The government is committed to giving Parliament the opportunity to inform and review new trade agreements as we move forward in the development of our future trade policy.

On September 12, 2018, the Secretary of State for International Trade, the Minister of State for Trade Policy and the Government`s Trade Negotiation Advisor held an information meeting on the FTA consultations, open to all MPs. Twenty-four Members participated and the questions were very varied and covered the four consultations. Comments sent to DIT by MPs on behalf of their constituents were also considered in our feedback analysis. The House of Commons International Trade Committee also published a report on uk-US trade relations, which the government responded to on 10 July 2018. We will review the findings of the commission from its inquiry into trade and the Commonwealth: Australia and New Zealand. The impact of a free trade agreement between the UK and Australia on CO2 emissions is uncertain, but possible changes could result from a shift in economic output between more and less carbon intensive sectors. It will also depend on other factors such as efficiency gains, the potential introduction of new technologies, the development of the final agreement or future carbon pricing policies. Free trade agreements offer members the opportunity to liberalize tariffs on a preferential basis.
