Barry, appearing on CNBC, has reiterated his calls for a Trade White Paper because 'the thing about going into a negotiation is to know what you want to get out of it at the other end.'
Barry went on to call for the UK's trade policy to line up with its industrial strategy. Barry said:
"They [the government] haven’t done that, but I welcome the fact Liam Fox has gone to America. I welcome the fact we’re beginning these discussions. We need to have a very good strong trading relationship with the U.S. Indeed we already have, it is our single largest bilateral trading partner after the European Union and it’s important we develop that further because the likelihood is that our trade with the EU will decline slightly after Brexit."
