Stop secret trade deals!
Email a Peer and ask them to take action
Trade deals can affect everything from food standards to climate action to jobs. (Find out what's at stake in a US Trade Deal.) 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? This tool will randomly select a Peer for you to write to.
