Brokenshire in talks with Bombardier management and unions

Brokenshire in talks with Bombardier management and unions”

Theresa May has hinted that the UK Government could boycott Boeing after a trade dispute over aggressive tariffs broke out - a dispute which could ultimately see 4,500 workers at Bombardier's Belfast factory made jobless.

James Brokenshire said actions taken by Boeing in its dispute with Bombardier "could have an impact on any future dealings" with the United Kingdom government.

In a speech at the Conservative Party conference on Sunday, the secretary of state said the action taken by Boeing was "unjustified and unwarranted".

The U.K.is anxious about "protectionism" and how it always "ends badly" and about being caught in the "crossfire of a much larger dispute".

He said he had underlined to local parties the need for a restore and Executive, to "find a deal and get agreement quickly", but added, "if they don't find a resolution, I may have to legislate to put in place a budget for Northern Ireland".

And it also undermines the assurances by Brexit campaigners such as Fox that free trade and London's close ties with Washington will drive Britain's prosperity and global influence after it leaves the European Union in 2019. This action is not what is expected of a long-term partner to the UK.

"I say to Boeing this case is unjustified and unwarranted".

The ruling is a political headache for Britain's minority Conservative government, which relies on support from a Northern Irish party to stay in power. It accuses Canada and Britain of unfairly subsidizing Bombardier and says Bombardier has illegally dumped its products in the US single-aisle airplane market out of desperation.

Mr Brokenshire said he was "deeply disappointed" by the determination. It accuses Canada and Britain of unfairly subsidising Bombardier and says Bombardier has illegally dumped its products in the USA single-aisle airplane market out of desperation.
