There will in my view be many benefits arising from our departure from the shackles of the European Union and one is that we will have the freedom to negotiate our own trade deals with growing economies around the World. In order to foster improved ties with India the Prime Minister along with Dr Liam Fox the Secretary of State for International Trade is Visiting India. Alongside them are representatives from 33 British businesses. Whilst I want Britain to improve trade links with India I also want to see an end to the dispute over the right of self-determination of Kashmir and of immediate concern an end to the increase in violence in Indian administered Kashmir. Along with other members of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Kashmir I wrote to the Prime Minister Theresa May ahead of her visit urging her to raise the issue of Kashmir and in particular the human rights violations during her meeting with Prime Minister Modi.
