To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, pursuant to the Answer of 4 December 2017 to Question 116341, whether his Department plans to replicate the 19 trade remedies currently in force against Chinese steel to which the UK adheres through its EU membership after the UK leaves the EU.

DIT is preparing a UK trade remedies framework in readiness for the UK leaving the EU.

In support of this, the Department has issued a call for evidence to identify which UK businesses produce goods currently subject to anti-dumping or anti-subsidy measures, or to an on-going investigation related to these.

It asks those businesses to state whether they support, are neutral to, or oppose the maintaining of those measures when the UK begins to operate its independent trade remedy framework.
