To Dr Liam Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade

Petition text

Trade is too important to be done in secret. Make all post-Brexit trade deals accountable and transparent by:
  • giving MPs the chance to debate and vote on them
  • consulting the public to make sure trade deals work for everyone

Why is this important?

Trade isn’t just something for politicians to discuss. It’s our everyday - the good and the bad. It’s the food we eat. The place we work. Or the reason we have access to NHS drugs invented thousands of miles away.

But we also know that trade deals can be done badly - when they put big corporations above people, jobs and the environment. So we need to make sure that the people in charge of trade know that we want the public to have a say in trade deals that affect us all.
