UK government puts pressure on US over whisky tariffs; trade minister says

Britain is putting pressure on the United States to rethink a decision to impose tariffs on Scottish whisky, trade minister Liz Truss said on Thursday.

The United States had plans to impose 25% tariffs on a range of European products which after it was authorized by the World Trade Organization as retaliation for illegal EU aircraft subsidies.

“I have made it very clear to the Americans that it is not helpful in terms of our relationship with them to see these tariffs placed on such an iconic industry,” Truss told parliament.

“We are putting as much pressure as we can on the United States over this issue and we will also be looking for measures to help the industry here in the UK.”
