Britain: Boeing UK contracts jeopardised after Bombardier decision
Sir Michael Fallon made the comments after the U.S. opted to impose a tax on the C-Series jet made by Bombardier.
The proposed 220% import tariff could threaten Bombardier jobs in Belfast.
Rival Boeing had complained that Bombardier had received unfair state subsidies from the UK and Canada.
It claimed these subsidies helped the firm win a major order. In 2016, Boeing won a contract to supply 50 Apache helicopters to the Army. ■
