Excellent meeting with Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj of Kosovo today. The Prime Minister was in London for the Western Balkans summit and took the opportunity to meet the All Party Parliamentary Group for Kosovo.
In the House of Commons today, I voiced to the Prime Minister the concerns held by both me and my constituents that we are conceding too much to the EU and should concede no more in the negotiations (PM's Statement: Exiting the European Union, 09-07-18).
I am delighted that after many months of work and negotiations between the Greater Grimsby Project Board and Government, Northern Powerhouse Minister, Jake Berry, has been able to visit North East Lincolnshire to formally announce and sign the Greater Grimsby Town Deal.
