I welcome the characteristic candour and openness with which the Secretary of State has approached the issue. Will he reassure me and the House that the scope of the inquiry will look not only at the NDA, but—as I think he just alluded to—at the role, if any, of UK Government Departments and the Scottish Government in the process?
To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what meetings he or Ministers of his Department have had with the National Farmers Union to discuss the UK's farming sector and international trade since 1 January 2017.
What assessment he has made of recent political developments in Northern Ireland.
