TJM Written Evidence to the Constitution Committee's Inquiry on Parliamentary Scrutiny of Treaties

This document sets out the Trade Justice Movement's Written Evidence to the Lords Constitution Committee's Inquiry on Parliamentary Scrutiny of Treaties.

The Trade Justice Movement has deep concerns about the level of democracy and scrutiny in UK trade policy. We believe the committee’s Inquiry is important and timely. Preparations for the UK’s departure from the European Union has not only highlighted to many the democratic deficit in scrutiny of trade deals, but also means that the UK will have an independent trade policy for the first time in over forty years. We are grateful for the opportunity to respond to the Inquiry and will answer the questions listed on the Inquiry’s website in turn, focusing particularly on trade agreements rather than other forms of international treaties, since this is our area of expertise.
