Andrew Mitchell MP has urged International Trade Minister, Liam Fox to make it clear that he is not attending a conference in Saudi Arabia next week, in light of the alleged murder of Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi. 
 
Mr Mitchell said “It would be inconceivable as matters stand today that a British minister could visit and take part in a Saudi Arabian trade festival.”
