Hi Barry,
Nitro is still made here, but only for wood finishes I believe. I am pretty sure it is not available as an automotive finish any more.
The stuff they make today is a modified, pre catalysed nitro, but it still has the characteristics of the old nitro, just a bit tougher.
Our environmental restrictions are not as severe as in the US, but they will get there eventually, whenever the govt work out how to actually profit from it.
