Commenting on news that International Trade Secretary Liam Fox’s new Board of Trade has only one member, Liam Fox, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:

“The Secretary of State, no doubt embarrassed by his lack of a real role in Government beyond accumulating millions of air miles, has had to invent a grandiose title for himself.  It will convince nobody.

“The signing of the first trade deals are years away, whereas the damage to our existing largest trade deal, with the EU, is happening now.”
