HM Government remains committed to protecting domestic industries against unfair practices, such as dumping and subsidies, surge of imports and market distortions.

The Secretary of State will make a decision to accept or reject the TRA recommendation soon. Her powers in this respect are limited: she can only accept or reject the recommendation as a whole.

In addition, I can confirm that the Secretary of State is taking a close look at the tools available to her to protect British industry and to deal with unexpected import surges and unfair trading practices.
