38 Degrees are asking people to sign an open letter to Dr Liam Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade, who is conducting negotiations with the USA
The open letter:
Dear Liam Fox,
38 Degrees members believe that trade is essential to the UK when we Brexit – it will make the economy stronger and let us show the world what Britain has to offer. But many recent trade deals have prioritised big business to the detriment of other things that matter – jobs, safety, and the environment.
So thousands of 38 Degrees members have come together and decided on red lines that cannot be crossed. Please stick to them when you go to the negotiating table.
All new trade deals must:
- Protect our NHS, environment and food safety standards
- Be negotiated in the open and voted on in parliament after the public has been consulted
- Benefit everyone, not just big business.
Thousands of citizens of the United Kingdom
