With Parliamentary sovereignty reasserted, a summer's evening of wine and political conversation was enjoyed at the House of Commons.
Dr Fox played a fundamental role in the campaign to leave the European Union. During the campaign, his was a measured and diplomatic voice of reason. His appointment as Secretary of State for International Trade follows a hugely experienced career in Westminster, he was previously Defence Secretary and Party Chairman. We are delighted that he has been reappointed to Cabinet and will be leading the way in negotiating new trade deals around the world.
Dr Liam Fox MP, Secretary of State for the new department for International Trade, spoke about his recent appointment and the exciting path ahead for the country.
"We are building something unique for our country and for the world. There are new ways of doing business."
"We intend to champion free trade. Free trade has taken more people out of poverty than anything else in history."
"Our job is to remove impediments to trade, whether real or perceived."
"I can't remember a time when I was so optimistic about Britain's future. Our country has regained its confidence and its self-respect."
Dr Fox finished his fantastic speech with a quote from Tennyson:
"So many worlds, so much to do, so little done, such things to be."
