I have to-date appointed 24 Trade Envoys who are MPs and Peers from across the political spectrum to represent the UK in 50 countries. They are parliamentarians from a range of backgrounds and I receive regular feedback from them on their work in promoting the UK in trade and investment matters. Further details of the Trade Envoy programme can be found on the gov.uk website.

One wonders why the Prime Minister is not in favour of granting pension parity worldwide to show these countries that the UK is a fair and honest country to deal with instead of discriminating against it's pensioners retired abroad by denying them their pension indexation as they are ambassadors for UK goods and services with many having worked for UK companies abroad prior to retirement. This disgraceful deprivation of what should be their right is overlooked and does a dis-service to the pensioner and the country in which they are retired.
