European Parliament calls for transparency in EU-US trade disputes [TTIP]

The European Parliament today passed their resolution
on the on-going trade talks between the EU and the US. The majority of MEPs
voted for a number of recommendations that they want to see included in the Transatlantic
Trade and Investment Partnership talks known as TTIP. One of the most
controversial aspects of the talks concerns the investor-state dispute
settlement mechanism [ISDS] that gives firms the power to sue governments over
policies they’re not happy with. Today the MEPs backed proposals that call for
any such disputes to be settled publically and transparently. The Sinn Fein MEP
Lynn Boylan says she is against any TTIP deal.
