Commonwealth: Motion to Take Note (March 2019)

The UK House of Lords take note of the continuing and evolving role of the Commonwealth and the United Kingdom’s relationship with it. The transcript is available here:

There are some hints of CANZUK seeping through to UK politics due to the influence of the Canadian Conservative Party.

Canada is a key Commonwealth member, with its great interest in CANZUK, the Canada-Australia-New Zealand-UK network on ideas for a major advance in Commonwealth trade and investment co-operation; again, it is completely ignored by the British commentary but it is vital. In fact, the change of leadership in Ottawa currently being mooted would give a stronger Commonwealth push from Canada than ever.

Lord Howell of Guildford
