Trade after Brexit - we can do better!
Over the next few months, our MPs will debate the Trade and Customs Bills. It’s an opportunity to change trade so it works for people in poorer countries.
But the government wants to replicate controversial EU trade deals with countries like Kenya and Ghana. These deals undermine development and the chance for people to trade their way out of poverty.
But we can do better. Email your MP and ask them to stand up in Parliament to make trade work or all poorer countries.
Ask for democracy in trade
With Brexit we will see big changes in trade. But under current rules, the government can pass new trade agreements with minimal input or scrutiny.
Ask Trade Secretary Liam Fox to put transparency and democracy in UK trade.
