During Treasury Questions on Tuesday 25th October, I tortured the rules of the House to remain in order as I asked the Chief Secretary to the Treasury the following question:
Steve Baker: Will the Right Honourable Gentleman agree with me that reducing the anti-competitive market distortions is both a fiscal way to promote manufacturing and insure our country is best placed for new trade deals
The David Gauke replied
I do agree that removing distortions in the economy results in a more efficient economy. The UK Government has a record in doing that, for example in reducing corporation tax.
