UK government criticised for role in Bombardier dispute

The UK government told US authorities that it did not consider itself a "legally proper party" to the Bombardier trade dispute with Boeing.

It also only submitted four pages of legal argument to a key hearing on the case held in December.

In December, the US Commerce Department ruled the UK and Canada had given unfair subsidies to Bombardier to help it build its C-Series aircraft.

It proposed tariffs of 292% on any imported planes.
