LONDON (Reuters) - The British government will confirm shortly what changes it wishes to make, if any, to the tariff schedules that would apply under a no-deal Brexit, senior minister Michael Gove said on Thursday.

Asked by a parliamentary committee whether previously announced schedules were still the current policy, Gove said: “They are not the final word, we will be confirming shortly what alterations, if any, take place, but there is a bias towards keeping things as they are.”
