Recent appearances

  • International Trade: Tariff Policies: US and China 17 Oct 2019

    What assessment she has made of the effect on EU trade policy of recent changes in tariff policies between the US and China.
  • International Trade: Tariff Policies: US and China 17 Oct 2019

    Does my right hon. Friend agree, given the growing disruption in the EU’s trade relationship with both the US and China, that now is not the time to have disruption in the EU-UK trade relationship?

  • International Trade: Topical Questions 17 Oct 2019

    Will the Secretary of State give us an update on where we are on joining the comprehensive and progressive agreement for trans-Pacific partnership?
