Jonathan Djanogly welcomes start of negotiations for US free-trade agreement


2nd March 2020

Following the Government statement on the release of documents marking the beginning of formal negotiations for a free-trade agreement with the United States, Jonathan Djanogly seeks assurances that information will be released to the US Congress and UK Parliament at the same time to minimise unhelpful speculation.


Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

In welcoming this statement, I note that the very substantial and comprehensive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations seemed to be distorted, by the media and many lobbying interests, into little more than one or two contentious policy areas. Are we going to learn the TTIP lessons, and in particular ensure that when deal information is released for review by the US Congress, Parliament consents to that at the same time—to minimise room for unhelpful or one-sided comment or speculation?

Elizabeth Truss

I agree that we need to make a clear case, and to ensure that Parliament is engaged.
