On 27th January, Andrew hosted an event in Parliament celebrating both Australia Day (26th January) and New Zealand's Waitangi Day (6th February) in Parliament.
Attended by New Zealand's High Commissioner, Sir Lockwood Smith, Australia's Deputy High Commissioner to the UK, Andrew Todd, co-Chair of the Australia and New Zealand All Party Parliamentary Group, the Rt. Hon John Spellar MP, and former minister, Liam Fox MP, the event was a huge success.
During the event, Andrew said:
'As the co-Chair of the Australia and New Zealand All Party Parliamentary Group, it was great to be able to kick off an event which reflected so well the strong and unique bond between the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.
'There are many challenges ahead for the British Government with regards to reviewing of our relationships and trade links overseas, and strengthening ties with countries such as Australia and New Zealand should be high on the Government's agenda..'
