    So it's now only 8-1 against...

    But what was this vote about?

    Ah yes, transferring EU environmental legislative functions into UK law...

    I'm just wondering what EU legislative functions quitters will object to being transferred?

    Because they haven't come up with anything yet!

    Leave the EU

    Trade deal with the yanks and cheaper imports
    Spares are as cheap as chips in the states

    It's the import of said parts that's a financial black hole

    EU has imposed a 66% tariff on Chinese steel, so expect higher prices for steel products.

    Still only a consultation.
    And it's not a ban on live exports.
    It's a move to get animals sent to the nearest abattoir at the 'end of their lives'.
    Effectively stopping live exports for slaughter.

    But you have to look at the figures to understand what this proposal is not.

    The majority of live exports are for 'fattening up' not for slaughter.
    Which at the moment isn't a part of the banning proposal, so not a full ban.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd support a ban as some countries that we send live animals to have worse welfare conditions than we do.
    But it's a bit ironic that whilst trumpeting the UK's animal welfare credentials, any deal we do with the US will probably have to include allowing in animal products which have been produced under even lower welfare standards!

    Read about anti steel dumping.

    UK steel companies mostly support the EU on its anti steel dumping measures.
