In response to President Trump's steel and aluminium tariffs announced last month, the European Union will launch retaliatory tariffs against US exports this Friday 22 June.

US exports such as jeans, motorbikes, cranberries, orange juice, sweetcorn and peanut butter will be targeted, trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom confirmed today.

Labour MEP Alex Mayer said:

“The position of Donald Trump is deeply worrying. He seems hell-bent on provoking trade conflicts around the globe.

“But he can't get away with bullying his trading partners.

"Of course Britain and the EU didn't want to get into this position but Trump's unilateral and unjustified decision didn't leave many options.

GTR has been particularly hit by the recent rail timetable shake up with passengers facing sudden cancellations and numerous delays.

Ms Mayer said “I’m glad that Charles Horton has taken the honourable decision to resign following the new timetable debacle, in stark contrast to this Government where the Transport Secretary has refused to take responsibility.

“The Government should apologise for the consequences of the new timetable chaos and the botched privatisation experiment.”

“It is clear that this ideological system for running our trains has failed, only a Labour government will bring the railways back under public control where they belong.”
