Speaking after the Prime Minister’s statement on her draft Brexit agreement, Philip Dunne urges the PM to ensure that the future framework protocol includes taking back control of our own procurement in the UK.
Millions of people up and down this country and hundreds of thousands of businesses want this House to get on with it. As my right hon. Friend looks to develop the future framework, I recognise that we will remain within the EU procurement rules during the course of the implementation period. The future framework protocol refers to mutual opportunities to go beyond the WTO Government procurement agreement. Will she give some indication to the House as to whether that will include taking back control of our own procurement in this country?
Yes, we are developing a framework for our own procurement arrangements.
