Rob today in an Urgent Question asked the Minister of State for Trade Policy, Greg Hands, on the importance of ensuring Britain fully benefits from the lasting partnerships built by continuity trade agreements and potential new deals.
"Businesses in my constituency of Aylesbury trade heavily with other nations, and obviously they want to get deals that will enable them to continue to do so as easily as possible. But they also know that deals have to be fair to both parties, whether that's two companies or two countries. So does my Honourable Friend agree with me, that we should stand firm for British interests, and not just accept any terms that are offered?"
The Minister of State, said in reply:
"My Honourable Friend is absolutely right, even in negotiation of continuity agreements, it is important that we make sure that we get the best possible deal for British consumers and for British businesses, including those in his Aylesbury constituency."
