To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what estimate he has made of the volume of (a) legislation and (b) regulations required to be (i) introduced and (ii) amended to give effect to the work of the Trade Remedies Authority; and how many of those items will be brought forward in secondary legislation.

The trade remedies framework is set out in the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018, which received Royal Assent on 14 September.

The regulations that will set out the detail of the system will be laid by my Department in the coming weeks; we anticipate that this will amount to 3 substantive statutory instruments.

There will be also some need for amendment of other secondary legislation in relation to enabling appeals to be heard by the Upper Tribunal, and the imposition of trade remedy measures on affected imports. These will be included in statutory instruments to be laid by MoJ and HMRC respectively.
