The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a free trade agreement that attempts to decrease regulatory barriers to trade between the EU and the US. TTIP is currently undergoing negotiations which are expected to conclude next year.
I recently met with constituents in Parliament regarding TTIP, which is gaining significant monument in Tottenham. The constituents came to hand in their petition which had an impressive 1,193 signatures. The constituents who signed this petition feel that TTIP is undemocratic and I share their concerns. We need to work to increase transparency and ensure a rewriting of the agreement.
If you wish to get involved in this campaign, you can sign the TTIP petition here.
