Coalition’s ethical trade principles

The UK government will begin to make its own trade deals after Brexit. This could be a disaster:  a US trade deal could open the market for the sale  of chlorinated chicken and GM food from US farms here in Scotland, for example. ..But it is also an opportunity.

A trade bill was in the Queen’s speech at the end of June. We want this bill to enable proper scrutiny and debate of new trade bills by the UK and devolved parliaments, and proper consultation with the public.

Please sign the petition to demand trade democracy

We also want the trade bill to set out an ethical policy for future trade negotiations with other countries. As a coalition, we have developed a set of principles on which we believe trade policy should be based. We are calling on our politicians in Scotland to endorse these principles and speak up for an ethical trade policy for the UK.

Please ask your MP to sign up to these ethical trade principles.
