To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether the termination of anti-dumping duty will apply to companies in Northern Ireland at the end of the UK's transition period with the EU.

Northern Ireland is – and will remain – part of the United Kingdom’s customs territory and trade remedies measures will apply on a nationwide basis. At the end of the transition period, those existing EU trade remedy measures that my Department assessed as being without significant producer interest in the United Kingdom will be terminated.

This will reduce the costs for British users of these products, and lead to lower prices for British consumers across the country. This highlights one of the benefits of the United Kingdom being able to operate her own independent trade policy, tailored to the specific needs of our nation.
