To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what progress the Government has made on establishing freeports in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales since 1 January 2021.
24 June 2021
Freeports will be national hubs for international trade, innovation and commerce, regenerating communities across the UK by attracting new businesses, spreading jobs, investment and opportunity to towns and cities up and down the country.
We want to ensure that the whole of the UK can benefit. We remain committed to establishing at least one Freeport in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as soon as possible.
