I found some information on trade sanctions from the following web sites:

General information from Harvard: http://www.cid.harvard.edu/cidtrade/gov/ukgov.html (Scroll down the page to see links to other useful sites regarding UK commerce and trade)

Foreign & Commonwealth office, pages "Sanctions and other export controls" and "Sanctions and export controls by country":

You may also want to look at the Research Guide for Economics: http://guides.sju.edu/economics

For more specific information regarding tariffs, embargoes, etc. in the UK, you  may want to look at some of the article databases in the Economics Guide such as EconLit, JSTOR or Business Source Complete.
