My Hon. Friend for Bournemouth West was appointed as the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Canada on 23rd August 2021. His term ended on 16th September 2021, when he was appointed as Minister of State to Northern Ireland. Due to only having spent a short time as the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy for Canada, there was insufficient time for a visit to Canada or external meetings.
