Trade after Brexit
The UK government cannot formally negotiate trade deals until after Brexit, but government ministers have already been flying around the world to lay the groundwork for future negotiations with countries like Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Philippines and the US.
These talks are being held in secret and parliament has no powers to scrutinise and approve any future trade deals. That’s why we are fighting to ensure the trade bill ensures parliamentary accountability over future trade deals.
A toxic trade deal with Trump
As it stands, on 1 November the UK government will be free to negotiate a trade deal with Donald Trump.
A US-UK trade deal could see chlorinated chicken on our supermarket shelves, US corporations in our NHS and a whole raft of our laws and regulations challenged in international corporate courts.
We can’t let that happen. Sign the petition to oppose a toxic US-UK trade deal now.
