James Brokenshire commented:

We are clearly very disappointed with this initial determination. Boeings position in this case is unjustified and not what would be expected of a long-term partner to the UK.

As the Prime Minister has made clear, we will continue to defend UK interests and work with Bombardier to protect vital jobs and livelihoods among the 4,200 skilled workers and their families in Belfast and across Northern Ireland.

We will also continue to work closely with the Canadian government to encourage all parties to reach a credible resolution as quickly as possible.
