Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: I thank all hon. Members for taking part. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Hornchurch and Upminster (Julia Lopez) that we need a lot more time to debate the issue. I thank everybody for their contributions and the Minister for his encouraging response. It is probably no surprise that I do not share the Opposition’s negativity about our ability to succeed outside the EU; I look...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: I beg to move, That this House has considered future international trade opportunities for the UK. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. Leaving the European Union will provide us with a unique set of opportunities to develop trade policy. As we leave influences and restrictions put on us by the EU, we will be offered an exciting opportunity to compete more freely...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. One of the priorities of the Department for International Trade, in co-operation with the Department for International Development, is to look at how to replicate and increase the effects of the economic partnership agreements. There are with seven in place now, and we want to extend them to 31 other countries, including African and Caribbean ones. The...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: The hon. Gentleman will not be surprised that I disagree. One of the issues with the single market is freedom of movement, which was an issue in the referendum, and similarly the customs union ties our freedom of policy. Being able to develop our own wider trade policies offers far more exciting possibilities to my constituents and to businesses around the country. Speaking of my part of the...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: Although the US is one of our biggest import markets, I do not necessarily think so, because the Government have committed to maintaining high food standards.

The scope of where our...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: I do not. I have spoken to a wide range of stakeholders, including the London Market Group, Lloyd’s and the Association of British Insurers. I will make the point later that from their perspective, even free trade agreements are not necessarily the way forward. Returning to the trend of the loss of global market share by UK commercial insurance, it is particularly important that the...

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Future International Trade Opportunities (1 May 2019)

Craig Tracey: I am sure the hon. Gentleman will be able to intervene later, as I want to wind up my remarks. I began by saying that leaving the EU brings a unique opportunity to the UK. In order to make the most of leaving, we need to rethink our strategy. The creation of our own UK regulatory framework can play a big part in that. I want to make it clear that the insurance industry is not looking for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Apr 2019)

Craig Tracey: I fully agree with the Prime Minister when she has repeatedly said that we need to honour both the result of the referendum and our manifesto commitments, which mean leaving the customs union and the single market. Does my right hon. Friend agree with me that if the best way to do that, rather than delivering a diluted deal that is unrecognisable to many of those who voted to leave, is to go...
