TTIP - Debate in Parliament

On Thursday 10th December there will be a debate in the House of Commons about the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Hundreds of constituents have contacted me to raise their concerns about this dangerous trade agreement.

In October I met local 38Degrees campaigners from Cardiff who delivered a petition against TTIP. I am proud to stand up against corporate interest and campaign against TTIP.

The trade deal is currently being negotiated in secret between the USA and the European Union and its main goal is to remove regulatory barriers.

These 'barriers' include environmental regulations, rights at work, food safety rules, restrictions on the use of toxic chemicals, digital privacy laws and banking safeguards.

It will also open up our public services, including our NHS and schools, to be run by US private companies for profit. TTIP also includes a right for foreign investors to sue the UK, Welsh and Scottish Governments in private courts for loss of profits resulting from their decisions. I will continue to campaign against TTIP.
