Sue Davies, Which? Head of Consumer Rights and Food Policy, said:
“Joining the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) could offer important opportunities for UK trade post-Brexit – provided that the government listens carefully to the issues consumers feel strongly about.
“Our research shows that people want trade deals that prioritise high food, product, data protection and environmental standards and deliver for consumers in all parts of the UK.
“As the current CPTPP deal has already been agreed by the existing members, the UK must not compromise on the issues that matter to UK consumers.”
