Ministers and officials have engaged extensively on EU exit with metals companies and representative bodies across the UK. Most recently, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy discussed the trade regime post-EU exit at a meeting of the Steel Council on 7th September. We want to achieve the best possible outcome and the strongest possible partnership - one that works for UK businesses. We plan to be ambitious in these negotiations and will secure the best possible access for firms to trade with and operate in the European market.
