star this property answer text <p>There is no World Trade Organisation tariff on steel – each country sets its own tariff levels as part of being a member of the WTO. The European Union’s most favoured nation (MFN) tariffs for steel, which apply to all third country WTO members without a preferential arrangement, are either zero or very low, and will remain so. In a no deal scenario UK exports to the EU will face the same tariff situation as they currently do, as the EU’s MFN tariffs for most steel products faced by third countries are already bound at zero – meaning that there would be no tariff impact on UK steel exports to the EU. The EU currently also apply safeguard tariffs (at 25%) on steel imports from most third country trade partners, where they fall outside the current tariff rate quotas, to protect the EU steel sector from unforeseen surges in imports. It will be for the EU to decide how these safeguards should apply to the UK in the event of a no-deal exit.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As outlined in the Governments Clean Growth Strategy we are investing around £177 million to further reduce the cost of renewables, including innovation in renewables electricity sources, offshore wind turbine blade technology and foundations. In addition, we have made available £557 million to support further deployment of renewable technologies through our Contract for Difference scheme.</p><p> </p><p>The Political Declaration on energy cooperation between the North Seas Countries – focussed on regional coordination in the development of hybrid projects linking offshore windfarms with interconnectors - is a voluntary, intergovernmental initiative outside formal EU structures. Therefore, the UK’s participation is not affected by EU exit. North Seas cooperation is an area with the potential to benefit both UK consumers and business, by facilitating renewable energy and contributing to decarbonisation and security of supply. The UK has brought experience, expertise and leadership to this initiative, and there is no reason that EU exit should change this.</p>

This represents a 53.1% increase, compared to the 29.7% increase in the rest of the economy over the same period. When viewed as a percentage of the UK’s entire GVA, the creative industries now make up 5.5% of the UK’s total GVA, a 53.1% increase since 2010.</p><p>DCMS measure the design sector under the broader category of &quot;design and designer fashion&quot;. In 2017 these sectors contributed £3.95 billion to the economy, up from £1.97 billion in 2010. This represents a 100.6% increase and in 2017 these sectors contributed 0.2% of the UK’s GVA.</p>
