TTIP and the NHS

A number of constituents have written to me urging me to support the Amendment tabled to the Queen’s speech to ensure that the government protects the NHS in any EU negotiations over the health sector within the planned EU Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
I can assure constituents I do support this amendment, as I am a co-author and sponsor of it. The government is likely to accept it, as I doubt they have the votes to vote it down.
