Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee Inquiry

27th January 2016

As a local MP and a member of the House of Commons Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee, I would be grateful for your help with a forthcoming inquiry that the Committee is undertaking into exports and the work of the UK Trade & Investment.

You can find further details about the inquiry here. I would very much welcome your thoughts and comments on your own experiences of exporting and the work of UKTI. Below are a number of questions which might help form the basis of a response but of course feel free to provide any information which you think might be helpful. Does your company export and, if not, what is stopping you? Does UKTI help in identifying and navigating global export markets for your firm? What more could UKTI do to assist your company? Please e-mail your thoughts and comments to me at I do hope you will take a few minutes to take part and thank you in advance for your time. Best wishes Paul Blomfield MP for Sheffield Central
