Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross has said he will vote against allowing UK imports of chlorinated chicken and hormone-injected beef from the United States as part of a post-Brexit trade deal.Ross said the UK government is listening to complaints from the National Farmers Union (NFU), which has a strong presence in his rural Moray constituency and fears a US trade deal threatens food standards.

He said ministers in London also had to refine their proposals on common rules for the UK’s “internal market” after the country left the EU’s single market next year. They want a system of mutual recognition, whereby quality standards in one part of the UK would automatically be accepted by all four governments.
