To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU on their ability to make representations to other countries about human rights abuses in the face of possible threats by such countries in relation to trade deals and other agreements.
The UK has a long tradition of protecting and promoting human rights in our bilateral relations and multilateral fora. The UK supports the promotion of these values globally and this will continue as we leave the EU. We are committed to upholding the UK's high standards. We are exploring all options in the design of future trade agreements.
