I refer the Hon. Member to the answer I gave to the Hon. Member for Brent North on 27 March 2018, UIN: 133574.

The US has granted a temporary exemption to the UK as part of the EU until 1 May. The EU will continue to make representations to the US on extending any exemption, and the UK is working with UK businesses to continue to understand the impacts that this may have.
