Fox’s job is to promote British business, not attack it

Commenting on the report in the Times that the Secretary of State for International Trade, Liam Fox, has labelled UK business ‘too fat’ and ‘too lazy’, Pat McFadden MP of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“For the second time in a week Downing Street, has had to say a Brexit Minister doesn't speak for the Government.

“If the Government doesn't confirm it supports membership of the Single Market it won't serve British business, but that is hardly surprising if ministers can't even speak up for British business.

“It is hard to see why the Government's trade minister is attacking British business when he is supposed to be promoting the UK as a great place to do business.”
