Harriett Baldwin asks the Government about progress on the EU trade negotiations


9th June 2020

Following the Government statement on the negotiations on the UK’s future relationship with the European Union, Harriett Baldwin asks about progress given that we are starting from a level playing field with zero tariffs and zero quotas.

Is this not the only trade deal in history that starts out from a level playing field? Should that not make it much easier for us to find a pragmatic way forward?

Penny Mordaunt

My hon. Friend makes a very good point. It is not just that we have been in this partnership with the EU but the fact that its arrangements with other nations set the parameters for many of the things that we are discussing. This is perfectly doable. It is just a matter of good will and focus, but there is good will, and there is increasing focus.
