Liam Fox quotes

Jul 23 2017 - Brexit

Would we be able to negotiate our own trade agreements during that transition period? Because if we were not, then we wouldn't be able to take full advantage of the freedoms available to us when we leave the European Union. So there's still a discussion to be had, but I don't think that there's any great ideological blockage on the concept of a transition or an implementation period as I would rather put it.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Brexit

Having the world's largest economy publicly show commitment to increasing trade with us is not something we should sneer at.feedback

Jul 23 2017 - Immigration

We will look to see what we are going to do in terms of making that a smooth transition for our businesses, to give them maximum certainty and to cause minimal disruption. Frankly, having waited for over 40 years to leave the European Union, 24 months would be a rounding area, whether that's 23, whether that's 25 is not a huge deal and nor is it an ideological one. It's about the practical issues we would face about getting, for example, any new immigration system into place, getting any new customs system into place.feedback

Jul 23 2017

For example would we be able to negotiate our own trade agreements during that transition period? Because if we were not then we wouldn't be able to take full advantage of the freedoms available to us when we leave the European Union, so there's a discussion to be had.feedback

Jul 23 2017

I want to leave the European Union at the end of March 2019. Now once we have done that, once we have fulfilled our promise to the British people, we can look to see what we are going to do in terms of making that a smooth transition.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Brexit

The only reason that we wouldn't come to a free and open agreement is because politics gets in the way of economics.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Brexit

I think that the prime minister is likely to be there for the rest of this parliament, I think she has the support of her colleagues in the House of Commons, I think she has a mandate to be the prime minister.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Brexit

Will you be in your job in another year's time? None of us can predict the future.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Brexit

We can of course survive with no deal and we have to go into a negotiation with those on the other side knowing that that's what we think.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - World Trade Organization

What we are doing is to discuss at the WTO why Britain believes in free trade, why we reject the concepts of protectionism, why we think that we need to liberalise the services economy globally. We don't want to have no deal. It is much better that we have a deal than no deal. We can of course survive with no deal. And we have to go into a negotiation with those on the other side knowing that's what we think. That's the legal definition – if you are out of the European Union, you are not in the single market or the customs union.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Single market

You cannot leave the European Union and be in the single market or the customs union, they are EU legal entities.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - Brexit

We've always said that we wanted to have minimal disruption and maximum continuity until we reached a final agreement and that's perfectly reasonable that people should want to have some transitional period.

Jul 07 2017 - Brexit

We're going into an arrangement with the EU already with zero tariffs, we're going there with complete regulatory equivalence and with customs systems that already work. The only reason we wouldn't replicate them would be if politics got in the way of good economics.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Brexit

We want Britain to be able to negotiate our own trade agreements with old and new allies across the globe. That means leaving the customs union and establishing a trade policy tailored for our business, our economy, and our citizens. At 9.30 this morning we published figures that showed a record-breaking number of foreign direct investment projects came in to the UK in 2016/17, at 2,265, and that's safeguarding nearly 108,000 jobs or creating new jobs in the UK. No doubt the usual suspects will describe it as 'despite Brexit.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Brexit

Jun 30 2017 - Northern Ireland

Jun 25 2017 - Russia

We know that our public services are attacked so it is not at all surprising that there should be an attempt to hack into parliamentary emails.

Jun 24 2017

We've seen reports in the last few days of even cabinet ministers' passwords being for sale online. We know that our public services are attacked so it's not at all surprising that there should be an attempt to hack into parliamentary emails.feedback

We want Britain to be able to negotiate its own trade agreements, and as we leave the European Union that is what we will do.feedback

Jun 11 2017

Jun 09 2017

May 27 2017 - Libya
