David Cameron facing Queen's Speech defeat over TTIP deal

on Thu May 19, 2016 11:09 am
Conservative MPs are threatening to inflict a Commons defeat on David Cameron over his Queen's Speech.
The critical amendment, signed by 25 Tory MPs, centres on the controversial EU-US trade deal, known as TTIP.
The MPs - led by former cabinet minister Peter Lilley - want the government to ensure the NHS is protected from US multinationals.
Downing Street insists the NHS is "completely protected" in the TTIP negotiations.
Mr Cameron's Queen's Speech was seen as being designed to avoid further revolts ahead of the EU referendum.
The rebel amendment expresses regret that the government has not brought forward a bill to protect the NHS from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal, currently being negotiated between the EU and the US.
Although it would be a purely symbolic vote, no government has suffered a defeat on a Queen's Speech, setting out its legislative programme for year ahead, since 1924.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has long opposed TTIP, has said he would back the Conservative rebels.
It is understood the SNP and other minority parties are also likely to support the amendment.

'Completely protected'...............
