Trade Minister Damien O’Connor has left for the United Kingdom to try and shore up a free trade deal and convince British farmers their country won’t be flooded with New Zealand beef. He is the first Cabinet minister to leave the country since the borders were shut and will do two weeks in managed isolation when he returns. Damien O’Connor arrives in London as the G7 summit closes, and as Australia and the UK are set to strike a free trade deal. New Zealand wants the removal of high trade tariffs and access for agricultural products. Beef + Lamb CEO Sam McIvor says it is vital that the Minister is not pushed around and gets his message across.
