Trade (India) (7 Dec 2005)

There are many different issues on which one could focus under such a broad title, but I shall use the short time available to me to focus on one question; what further steps should we take to boost UK exports to India? I contend, as the Minister will have gathered from the strong hint in my contribution...

Trade (India) (7 Dec 2005)

Stephen Crabb: That is certainly an important contribution. Another example of a country achieving impressive export growth to India is Israel.
