To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, pursuant to the Answer of 8 September 2017 to Question 6797, whether India indicated during discussions on the trade relationship between the UK and India that the Government would have to relax immigration rules with India for a future trade deal to be agreed.

Our discussions with India through our joint trade review have been wide-ranging and covered many aspects of our trading relationship. The review is principally an analytical project to understand our bilateral trading relationship, rather than a formal negotiation. As such, immigration rules have not been raised as a pre-requisite for further trade talks.
