Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow International Trade Secretary, commenting ahead of Anne-Marie Trevelyan’s visit to the United States, said:

“The Government have long promised that a Free Trade Agreement with the United States would be top of the priority list. We are two years on from the General Election and no deal is even in place.

“The Secretary of State must use her visit to Washington to prioritise British jobs and industry and kickstart the negotiations.

“She must also – urgently – work with the US Government to lift the damaging steel and aluminium tariffs imposed in 2018. The Conservatives have not taken this issue seriously enough – they must stop letting steel workers down.”
