COPENHAGEN: The flow of Danish butter and bacon to Britons' breakfast tables is expected to fall by around a quarter in case of a hard Brexit, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said on Tuesday.

Denmark's food exports to Britain, which totalled US$1.7 billion in 2017, are set to drop by around 24 per cent should Britain exit the European Union without a deal, leaving goods subject to World Trade Organisation tariffs, the OECD said, report agencies.

Britain's parliament is widely expected to vote against Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal on Tuesday, opening up outcomes ranging from a disorderly divorce to a reversal of Brexit.
