To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what plans he has to protect public services in future negotiations on trade agreements.
My Rt Hon Friend the Prime Minister has established the Department for International Trade to promote British trade across the world and ensure the UK takes advantage of the huge opportunities open to us.
The trade agreements the UK is currently party to include specific guarantees for public services. Decisions on how to deliver public services for the best outcomes for UK citizens are made by the UK Government. The Government wants to ensure the continued provision of quality public services.
