Welcoming the report on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) by the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee published today (Wednesday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“MPs are right to demand that the protection of the NHS and public services should be put beyond doubt by writing it in to the deal rather than just relying on the assurances of ministers and EU commissioners. The TUC also agrees with the MPs’ call for a sector by sector assessment of the potential risks and benefits of TTIP.
“The government should respond to the MPs’ view that the case for including Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) has not been made by scrapping this undemocratic and unfair preferential treatment for foreign investors.”
