Suspended MP Is Still PM Envoy

ED Vaizey is still the Prime Minister’s trade envoy to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam despite losing the Tory whip, TBG can reveal.

Wantage MP Vaizey was appointed a trade envoy by Theresa May in September 2017, having served for six years as a culture minister under close friend David Cameron.

Downing Street this morning said Trade envoys are drawn from various parties.

Yesterday TBG reported that Rory Stewart and David Gauke will be attending events at the Conservative conference.
