Ask the House of Lords to back trade democracy

Currently the UK parliament has no meaningful say over trade deals - it does not even get a vote on them. Without democracy, trade deals have become a blank cheque to slash standards, entrench privatisation and privilege a corporate agenda.

The Trade Bill going through parliament could change this. It is currently in the Lords and Labour and the Lib Dems have put down amendments that could give parliament a vote and the right to meaningful information on what is on the table in negotiations.

Email the leaders of the political parties in the Lords to tell them how important these amendments are and ask them to vote in favour.
