Alex Sobel has signed the People’s NHS pledge to take NHS out of TTIP

Today I am supporting People’s NHS action here in Leeds NW – calling for the exemption of the NHS from TTIP.

I made my own views on TTIP very clear months ago

 ‘I could NOT accept any threat to our control over corporations, to workers’ rights, to consumer protections, to our capacity to renationalise our public services. I stand with the Labour Party’s view that it could not be accepted if it includes provision of public services and does not include an NHS exception. TTIP cannot be accepted if Investor State Dispute Settlement is in the final text.’

For all these reasons, I’ve signed up to the People’s NHS pledge to take the NHS out of TTIP.

Like them, I do not believe that anything other than exemption would be enough.
