Nick Thomas-Symonds: I am grateful for the granting of today’s urgent question and I congratulate the hon. Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) on securing it. The Government’s failure to make adequate parliamentary time available for a debate on this trade deal is completely unacceptable and a clear breach of promise.

Steel Safeguards (29 Jun 2022)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for her statement and for advance sight of it. The extension of safeguards will come as a welcome relief to the steel sector.

Our steel sector is...

International Trade: Topical Questions (16 Jun 2022)

International Trade: Topical Questions (16 Jun 2022)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: To say that a decision is expected shortly simply is not good enough.

Prime Minister’s Visit to India (26 Apr 2022)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: Conservative Prime Ministers being abroad when their leadership is under threat is not something new in our politics, but a Conservative Prime Minister abroad seeking to negotiate binding legal commitments from other world leaders when they have themselves broken the law is new, and the Prime Minister should be here giving a statement. Instead, we have a Prime Minister whose moral authority...

International Trade: Topical Questions (21 Apr 2022)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: In recent weeks, the Government announced the suspension of all tariffs and quotas on trade between the United Kingdom and Ukraine.

International Trade: Topical Questions (21 Apr 2022)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: I have met the Ukrainian Business and Trade Association, as I am sure has the Secretary of State, and I know that there were already issues with how the quota system worked before the invasion occurred.

International Trade: Topical Questions (3 Mar 2022)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: I do of course appreciate that it is vital to work together with friends and allies, but let me push the Secretary of State on this specific point, because cutting off the supply of luxury products would send a further signal to those in Putin’s Kremlin, who have, by the way, often accumulated wealth and possessions at the expense of the Russian people. We can act on this and we can act...
