Stop secret trade deals: Email a Lord!

No more secret trade deals!

Trade deals can affect everything from food standards to climate action to jobs. But currently, they are written to privilege corporate power. The Trade Bill now before Parliament provides no role for MPs to have a say.

As the government sets out the UK’s new trade relationships, we need democratic control over these far-reaching deals.

MPs must get an automatic vote and the power to make amendments on all trade deals, and there must be debates on objectives, a role for devolved administrations, impact assessments and transparency throughout.

However, the government continues to insist none of this is needed.

Can you write an email to a member of the House of Lords to defend trade democracy?
