BRITAIN contingency accept US food standards such as chlorinated duck in any new trade understanding with Donald Trump, an American tillage trainer has insisted.
Head of a American Farm Bureau Zippy Duvall insisted a new UK-US agreement would be voted down by Congress if it didn’t have a vital boost for cultivation imports.
Fears over practices such as soaking duck in chlorine and regulating genetically mutated crops were not “science-based”, he also argued.
US National Security Advisor John Bolton this week affianced a UK will be “first in line” for a trade understanding after Brexit.
And talks could see mini deals struck first, zone by sector.
But Mr Duvall rubbished that, saying: “To have a trade covenant and not plead cultivation would be branch your behind on farming America and that’s where a large partial of a race lives.”
There are fears in Britain and Europe that a US trade understanding would meant a concede on food standards.
But Mr Duvall added: “There is no systematic basement that says that soaking ornithology with a chlorine rinse only to be protected of whatever pathogens competence be on that duck as it was prepared for a market, should be taken away.
“If there was something wrong with it a sovereign investigation systems would not be permitting us to use that.”
