The Government is seeking continuity of our existing EU trade agreements as we leave the EU and recently updated the House on progress on our progress to achieve continuity of our existing free trade agreements.

I refer the honourable member to the Government’s written statement published on 21st February 2019. We will continue to inform the House as soon as further agreements are signed.
