Jude calls for UK government to stop blocking trade defence reforms

25 November 2015

Labour MEPs are calling on the UK government to stop blocking EU action to tackle the steel crisis.

Among the measures British ministers are thwarting are reform of the EU's trade defence measures, reforms that would enable more to be done to stop the dumping of steel by countries like China - selling it at below the price it can fetch at home, or exporting it at below the cost of production.

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
