He said: “It’s more than just medicine, it’s things like radioisotopes, it’s also equipment for delivering radiation therapy for example, cancer treatment, because of course most these things are made in Europe and we have had special deals and there of course will be difficulties about transporting radioactive material for health care across borders, which were never a problem before.”
