Which? response as government to put Trade and Agriculture Commission on statutory footing

Sue Davies, Head of Consumer Protection and Food Policy at Which?, said:

“This move to allow greater scrutiny of trade deals is a positive step that could help build trust in the government’s approach to negotiations with other countries.

“However, if the Trade and Agriculture Commission is to be put on a statutory footing, its membership must change so that the needs and concerns of millions of consumers who will ultimately judge the success of new trade deals are properly represented.

“British people are overwhelmingly in favour of maintaining our existing food standards, and it’s vital that these are not undermined by post-Brexit trade deals.”
