U.K. Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan will press U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo on Tuesday to remove Trump-era tariffs on British steel and aluminum after the U.S. struck a deal with the European Union in October to remove their levies.

“We’ve already made strong progress; from getting British beef and lamb back on U.S. plates, to lowering the cost of Scotch whisky exports by addressing the long-running Airbus-Boeing issue,” Trevelyan said in a statement. “Now is the time to hit the ground running and get on with boosting ties with our closest ally.”
