Trade after Brexit

A number of constituents have contacted me about trade after Brexit in relation to the NHS.

I have received the following assurance:

“On the specific issue of public healthcare, the Government is committed to protecting the NHS. The NHS is safeguarded by specific exemptions in all EU trade agreements and, as our country leaves the EU, the UK will continue to ensure that rigorous protections for the NHS are included in all trade agreements it is party to.
