Local Parliamentary candidate, Lee Rowley, welcomed Dr. Liam Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade, to Wingerworth today as part of his plan to ensure Brexit is a success for North East Derbyshire.
Lee and Dr. Fox spoke to residents on the doorstep in Wingerworth about issues of local and national concern and also discussed, more widely, the opportunities and challenges of Brexit, the need to forge strong partnerships across the world in future years and the vital role that exporting companies like those in North East Derbyshire can play in the United Kingdom's future prosperity.
"It's great to see another Cabinet Minister come to North East Derbyshire and it demonstrates Theresa May's commitment to making Brexit a success for our area and the United Kingdom," says Lee. "Dr. Fox told me how useful a visit it had been and emphasised, again, how important the strong and stable leadership that Theresa May provides will be in future years as we negotiate our exit terms. I'm grateful to Dr. Fox and local residents for their time today."
