The Government has and will continue to make representations to the US Administration, at the highest levels on the proposed tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. The Prime Minister raised the UK's concerns personally with President Trump on 4 March.

The Government has made clear that it does not support these tariffs and is working closely with affected UK businesses and will continue to do so.
