I welcome the Minister to his place. On 2 May, the Secretary of State told the House that “we are keen to negotiate to allow for the most frictionless trade possible with the European Union.”—[Official Report, 2 May 2018; Vol. 640, c. 300.] Why does the term “frictionless trade” not appear in the political declaration?
That just is not good enough. The Secretary of State has given his backing to an agreement that does not even mention Wales, let alone protect workers’ rights, environmental standards, consumer protections or living standards. Is not the reality that this is a bad deal for Wales that fails to give Welsh people the certainty needed to safeguard jobs and livelihoods?
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment his Department has made of the potential effect of delays in drug supply chains on access to medicines for breast cancer patients in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
