Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

"Nissan may be allowed to deduct additional tariffs as some form of cost" The would only be "allowed" if the Govt. allowed that; so it would be a Govt. action.

Would probably be against WTO rules anyway! If you look at the WTO example of action against subsidies for motor manufacturers I posted earlier one of the complaints was "forgone government revenue"!

Lately the UK Govt. seems to be supporting publicising provocative statements like this example plus last week May told the Council of Europe that the UK was already negotiating trade agreements with other countries.
Creating the law would be a parliamentary/governmental action, but not the deducting/compensating itself. While this may look like cutting hairs, it's about political usage of words so the difference may well be significant (IMO it is, keeping in mind I'm not English native).
