UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Graham Stuart: It is a great pleasure, Mr Evans, to serve under your chairmanship on the first outing for this ingénue Minister. I congratulate and thank my hon.

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Graham Stuart: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. The Department for International Trade was set up precisely to promote trade around the world, not only to enrich this country but in the sure knowledge that trade and an open, liberal, rules-based system enriches everybody, and most of all the poorest. In places such as Palestine, which are on a developmental path, it is absolutely essential that we...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Graham Stuart: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. Of course, it is always a pleasure to take a job and have one’s predecessor giving instructions on how to carry out that job. Any decision about the resourcing in Israel is subject to a decision by Her Majesty’s trade commissioner for Europe, and that will come about in due course. However, I will take this intervention as strong...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Graham Stuart: I really have very little time, so if my hon. Friend will allow me, I will not take any more interventions.

We are also seeing growing co-operation between our Governments. In May, we signed...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Graham Stuart: I am afraid that I will not give way. As I was saying, that comes on top of the existing UK-Israel tech hub at our embassy in Tel Aviv—the first country ever to establish a tech hub at an embassy. That kind of co-operation, as the hon. Member for Strangford and others have said, will not only help our trade; it will have a real effect on our nation’s health. I have very little...

The GREAT campaign has been very significant in promoting that and we have trade advisers throughout the country. Indeed,...

International Trade: Exports in Global Markets (28 Jun 2018)

Graham Stuart: The hon. Gentleman is right and, along with many of his colleagues, he is a great champion of local businesses. That is why it was particularly disappointing that we saw so many of his colleagues shaking their heads in disbelief when they heard the shadow Secretary of State the other day refusing to support the EU-Canada trade deal and refusing to support the EU-Japan trade deal. He will...
