LGA - Reponse to the House of Commons International Trade Committee report

Cllr Kevin Bentley, Chairman of the LGA’s Brexit Taskforce, responded to the House of Commons International Trade Committee report

“The UK’s future trade policy will have a significant impact on local government and the communities they serve, creating challenges that need to be addressed but also opportunities to do things differently.

“It is positive that this report recommends an important scrutiny role for local government in international trade, including having a representative on the new Strategic Trade Advisory Group.

“The position of public services within trade deals, local government’s ability to support businesses and also attract inward investment should be an important focus as we develop new trade deals.”
