Ask your MP to demand a say on future trade deals
The government wants to make trade deals which could undermine UK food standards, multiply our carbon and ecological footprint, and trash our environment.
What’s more, it’s trying to remove any guarantee MPs will debate or approve these potentially damaging deals. This is a clear attempt to roll back democracy.
Will you ask your MP to defend their right to have a say in future trade deals? We’ve written a template email, so it should only take a minute.
The trade deals the government wants to make will impact the UK in many ways – from the quality of goods we produce to how easy it is for the government to make new environmental laws.
The products the UK buys and sells are made in ways that can contribute to climate and ecological breakdown. So these deals could also have huge impacts on people and nature around the world.
That’s why it’s vital that MPs – the people who can represent our concerns in parliament – have the power to decide which trade deals should go ahead.
