Parliamentary scrutiny of trade deals

I am pleased to say that I will sign EDM 128 (parliamentary scrutiny of trade deals) when parliament returns in the Autumn.

I do not believe that negotiating, signing and ratifying international treaties should be the exclusive preserve of the Government, operating without checks and balances or democratic oversight.
