MP Graham Stuart says his constituents remain his top priority after being appointed International Trade Minister.
The new role will see Mr Stuart play a key part in directing UK trade policy across the world.
He says he'll use his position to speak up for businesses and consumers in our area, and make sure we're not left behind during Brexit talks.
Mr Stuart says: “I am delighted by this opportunity to play a bigger role in the UK’s trading relationships and help to secure our future prosperity. I am clear, however, that my constituents in Beverley and Holderness remain my top priority – they have been since I was elected in 2005 and that will not change.
“This new role, in an important and growing government department, will allow me to speak up for businesses and consumers in our area, who rely upon the UK’s trading relationship with foreign partners for everything from a market for their goods to reducing the cost of their weekly supermarket shopping.
“As we leave the European Union, the UK’s global trading relationships are more important than ever, and I will ensure that we in Beverley and Holderness are not left behind as the UK explores these exciting and wide-ranging opportunities.”
