To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether trade unions will be defined as interested parties in trade remedies investigations once the UK has an independent trade policy.

The UK trade remedies system will adopt the WTO definition of interested parties, that is:

  • Producers of the like goods in the UK
  • An overseas exporter or UK importer of the goods subject to investigation
  • Trade or business associations of such producers, exporters or importers
  • The government of the exporting country of the goods under investigation

Other parties who may have an interest in the case, such as Trade Unions, will be able to participate as contributors.
