This Government is committed to making the UK the safest place in the world to be online and the best place to start and grow a digital business. We will carefully consider any interaction between trade policy and online harms policy in future trade agreements.

The UK Government has engaged with US Trade Representative on a range of areas including digital trade. Inevitably there is speculation as to what each side will want to achieve in a future UK-US deal, but it is too soon to say exactly what would be covered.
