A clear instruction had gone out to the country’s embassies and trade bodies that they needed to start work on new trade deals ahead of Britain’s exit from the 28-member bloc, he told parliament on Wednesday.
“A very clear instruction has gone out … We should be doing all we can to engage as hard as we can with other parts of the world to start to think about those trade deals, those investment deals, and the inward investment we want to see in the UK,” he added.
