For a detailed study of the impact of WTO tariff rates on EU/UK trade see here (pdf). There are different tariff rates on over 5,000 different product lines ranging from 0% to over 80%. Food and clothing attract the highest tariffs with meat c. 50%. The aggregate tariff on all Irish exports to UK is by far the highest in the EU (because of our heavy emphasis on food) and comes in at c. 18%. Trade in some product lines is expected to cease entirely because of the punitive nature of the tariff rates.
