Environmental Risks Of The Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership
HC 857, Ninth Report of Session 2014-15 - Report, Together with Formal Minutes Relating to the Report
- House of Commons - Environmental Audit Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
'Environmental Risks Of The Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (HC 857)' examines the ways in which the Trans-Atlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) can be safeguarded against the breaching hard-won environmental and public-health protections.
As the TTIP negotiations proceed, the next Government will have to get itself involved, and ensure that the EU negotiators do not engage in a race to the bottom as it combines the two bloc's regulatory systems. Europe must retain its right to regulate. That needs to be embedded in any treaty text.
More importantly, however, any Dispute Settlement provision must unambiguously deny US companies any opportunity to sue the UK Government when it looks to introduce necessary environmental or public health safeguards.
