Today’s much-anticipated vote in the European Parliament, which was to lay out our position on the ongoing Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership negotiations, has been postponed. The new date for the debate and vote has not yet been confirmed.
Nothing else about the debate has changed. We continue to argue for a TTIP that benefits people on both sides of the Atlantic, that clearly excludes all public services, that does not establish a secret ISDS tribunal system that privileges investors, and that includes binding safeguards for labour rights and the environment. The vote will go ahead, it will just be at a future date.
- For Labour MEPs’ official view on the postponement (we argued against it, but lost by a handful of votes), read this press release.
