Mr Johnson’s plan would see the United Kingdom to leave the European Union on October 31st and for Northern Ireland to leave the EU customs union - the bloc’s tariff-free trading area.

Non-tariff barriers will be the biggest threat to agricultural trade after Brexit, a conference heard this week. we will begin to diverge and life will become more difficult,” Mr Gleeson said.
