The removal of additional US tariffs on steel and aluminium is a key priority for the Government. The Secretary of State has been pushing for a speedy resolution to the Section 232 tariffs issue and during her December visit to the US she spoke to both the US Trade Representative Katherine Tai as well as the Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo about it. We are engaging with the US Administration regularly on this issue and continue to push for the start of negotiations and the removal of Section 232 tariffs as soon as possible.
