As my hon. Friend will know, my hon. Friend Michael Fabricant is very keen on our keeping up contact with the Mayor of the West Midlands combined authority. We of course do so, and create contacts with businesses that way. The strategic trade advisory group, which will be helping us with FTAs, includes representation from regional business. We will always be there to consult with local business, and I urge my hon. Friend Rachel Maclean to contact the local DIT business office in Birmingham in relation to any businesses in Redditch that need its help.
