I hope that the hon. Gentleman will look to this Government’s positive record, in spite of the scaremongering by many Opposition Members. There are already 41 trade defence measures in place and the outcomes speak for themselves. Rebar coming into the European Union has reduced by 99%, as has wire rod—the statistics speak for themselves. This Government are determined to take the right action to support not only free trade, but Welsh and UK businesses and industry.
