The UK government is vowing to step up demands for the United States to drop tariffs on goods such as single malt Scotch whisky
British Trade Secretary Liz Truss has welcomed Washington’s decision to resist new tariffs, but is disappointed that the existing levies haven’t been ditched.
Truss, who met her U.S. counterpart Robert Lighthizer last week, said: “These tariffs damage industry and livelihoods on both sides of the Atlantic and are in nobody’s interests.
“I am therefore stepping up talks with the U.S. to remove them as soon as possible.”
