Call Time on Tariffs Campaign- Latest Update
Commenting on the latest review of the US’ tariffs list on EU & UK goods, Charlene Wallace, Chief Executive, West Lothian Chamber of Commerce said:
“The decision by United States Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer to withdraw tariffs imposed on Scottish shortbread and sweet biscuits, and to avoid adding more trade taxes on our gin and blended whisky exports is a ray of light through the storm of this damaging trade dispute.
“It is now more important than ever that Trade Secretary Liz Truss redoubles her efforts to have further tariffs that have been imposed on Scotch whisky and cashmere knitwear lifted.
“Now is the tie to prove our mettle as a global trading nation by seeking a bilateral UK/US solution.’’
