Brexit ends safeguards against cheap steel imports

Measures have been in place since 2018 when the UK was part of the EU, and were extended as part of the*Brexit*transition period.

But they are due to expire next month – prompting fears among producers of a flood of metal from abroad.

The British regime sets tariff-free quotas for a range of steel products based on 2015-2017 levels of imports.
UK Steel believes the US and EU will extend their safeguards – and want International Trade Secretary Liz Truss to do the same for Britain. “To do otherwise would unilaterally expose the UK market to significant increases in imports at a time when the steel sector, like the rest of the economy, is in the process of recovery.”

Right.
The moon "could be" made of cream cheese too.
