My hon. Friend has outlined a number of options; I will be interested to hear more as we go through the negotiations. He is right that we have great products that are currently facing tariffs of up to 18%, and that we could eliminate those and see more exports into the US market. We will be looking at our export strategy—the exports Minister, my hon. Friend Graham Stuart, is with me on the Front Bench—and ensuring that we turbocharge our exports as we go into this important year of being an independent trading nation.
