Geoffrey Clifton-Brown welcomes Italian PM’s comments on EU-UK trade deal

14th December 2017

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown welcomes comments from Italian Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, calling on the EU to give the UK a “tailor-made” trade deal. 

Paolo Gentiloni, the Italian Prime Minister, called on the EU this week to give the UK a “tailor-made” trade deal. Is it not precisely that sort of sentiment that would help all sectors if we concluded a trade deal that suited them?

My hon. Friend raises an interesting point. We need to reflect on the fact that the UK is uniquely aligned among the countries that will be outside the EU; it is a huge market for the EU. There is a real opportunity for the EU to do a trade deal with what will be its biggest export market.

Now that the Christmas festivities are over, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a happy and successful new year.

For me, that started in a big way – by becoming a grandfather for the first time and for being simultaneously recognised in the New Year’s Honours list and being awarded a knighthood. I am absolutely delighted to receive this honour in recognition of the very many people I have helped over the years.

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.

WHAT CAN AN MP DO FOR ME?

Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
