Friend the Member for Scarborough and Whitby (Mr Goodwill).

International Trade: Free Ports (23 Jan 2020)

International Trade: Free Ports (23 Jan 2020)

International Trade: Free Ports (23 Jan 2020)

Graham Stuart: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. It is about tailoring the policy to the particular, ensuring we have something that does not lead to distortion but does lead to additional inward investment.

International Trade: Free Ports (23 Jan 2020)
