Both the UK Government and the US Government are fully committed to negotiating a comprehensive free trade agreement with one another.

However, these are unprecedented times and both sides are looking at options to conduct the negotiations in a way that reflects the current situation and respects public health.

We remain in regular contact with the US on this matter.
