I am glad to say that negotiations are now complete and I hope that the agreement will be signed within the very near future, and be brought into force on 1 July. When it is in force, United Kingdom hauliers will obtain the necessary permits from the Department's international Road Freight Office in Newcastle-upon-Tyne or from the Department of the Environment (NI) as appropriate.
