LONDON (Reuters) – British business minister Greg Clark will make a statement to parliament on Canadian aerospace manufacturer Bombardier on Tuesday <BBDb.TO> sometime after 1130 GMT, parliament announced. Prime Minister Theresa May intervened in a trade row between Canada and the United States after a complaint by Boeing <BA.N> led to the U.S. Department of Commerce imposing a preliminary 220-percent duty on Bombardier’s CSeries jets. The U.S. ruling puts as many as 4,200 jobs at risk at a plant in the British province of Northern Ireland, where the jets’ carbon wings are made.
