On 14th July Andrew Rosindell chaired a meeting of the Commonwealth All-Party Parliamentary Group, where he was joined by His Excellency George Brandis QC, the High Commissioner of Australia.
They discussed a number of issues during the meeting, including the recent UK-Australia trade deal and further opportunities for advancing UK-Australia cooperation.
Later in the meeting, the Executive Director of the Commonwealth Security Group Freddie Woolland also spoke to members of the APPG.
Andrew Rosindell M.P. said: “I am personally thrilled that it is Australia that is the first country with which the UK has secured its first post-Brexit trade agreement. There is no country which the UK has more in common with than Australia and therefore it is highly appropriate. I was delighted to greet the High Commissioner George Brandis QC and I on behalf of the Commonwealth APPG want to extend my deep gratitude for his role in securing this historic agreement.”
His Excellency George Brandis Q.C. said: “This is a much more comprehensive trade agreement than we have done with any other country. It was also one of the fastest.”
