UK urges US court to end ban on BP applying for government contracts

NEW YORK--Britain has formally backed BP's effort to overturn a U.S. ban on the oil giant from government contracts due to the disastrous 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

In a filing Monday to a U.S. court in Texas, the British government suggested the law may not have been applied fairly to BP.

It also warned that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ban on the company creates “harmful regulatory uncertainty” that might discourage other companies from cooperating with regulators.
