The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, David Lidington, hosted the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, at Lancaster House on 15 April 2019.
Speaker Pelosi was joined by eight members of the Ways and Means Committee, where they discussed the latest developments with the UK’s departure from the EU, maintaining the integrity of the union of the United Kingdom, and the close economic and security partnership between the UK and the US.
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, David Lidington, said:
I was delighted to welcome Speaker Pelosi and members of the Ways and Means Committee to London today. It is essential that the UK and the US continue to build upon our shared values and ambitions, paving the way for a future Free Trade Agreement and continuing our cooperation as security partners of choice.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said:
The United Kingdom and the United States share a deep and special bond of friendship. We were honoured to meet with Deputy Prime Minister, David Lidington, for a discussion on the next steps and direction of Brexit, where we affirmed the US commitment to the Good Friday Accords and peace in Northern Ireland.
