URGENT – Please email your MP NOW

The Trade Bill setting out the UK’s future trade policy will have its second reading on Wednesday 20 May.
In its present form the Bill contains no protection from trade deals for the NHS or for drug prices. 
Both the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for International Trade have publicly promised that the NHS is not “for sale” and that it will not be the subject of future negotiations.
It is important that these promises are written into law and the Bill needs to be amended to ensure this is the case.
Please email Laura Trott or Tom Tugendhat NOW urging them to try and make this happen. If neither of these is your MP or if you want to write something different you can change the template. 
Your email must include your name and address.

The lawyers who have come together to bring this case include SSTIE member, David Harrison from DAC Beachcroft.
