Mr Umunna said: “This bill does measure up to on new agreements that the extent that the trade remedies authority make have a locus and oversight on those agreements.
“And he said, I mean, he was corner of a campaign that promised that we would have all these new pacts with Canada, the US, Japan — we would immediately start negotiating with all these homelands.
“It’s right, isn’t it? That none of those negotiations has actually started.”
