I agree with Iain Dale (click here)on the huge ommission by Cameron on appointing a city heavyweight to the vacant International Trade Ministers’ portfolio. Surely, this isn’t the right signal to send when you’re trying to develop a commerce based foreign policy. UKTI, whilst being ably steered by Andrew Cahn, could do with a vocal champion who undertakes the role with as much gusto as Lord Digby Jones, combined with the phenomenal practical experience that Mervyn Davies brought to the role.
