James Sunderland welcomes CPTPP trade deal

James Sunderland praises the Government for signing up to the comprehensive and progressive agreement for trans-Pacific partnership which is “beyond question” the right thing for global Britain.

James Sunderland (Bracknell) (Con)

I thank the Government for this excellent announcement and congratulate all of those who have made it possible. It is beyond question that joining the CPTPP is absolutely the right thing to do. May I please ask the Minister what message he has for the doomsters who think that Britain should not have a global role, who think that Britain is in permanent decline and who think that we would be better off back in the European Union?

The Minister for International Trade (Nigel Huddleston)

The message is quite simple: life is better with the Conservatives in charge.
