8 out of 10 Brits would rather keep British food standards than get a trade deal with the United States but International Trade secretary Liam Fox refuses to rule out the future import of chlorinated chicken and hormone-fed beef. 

The National Farmers Union says, "It is imperative that any future trade deals, including a possible deal with the US, do not allow the imports of food produced to lower standards than those required of British farmers"

But politicians like Jacob Rees Mogg have called for lowering UK standards to get trade deals with other countries. 

If you're one of the millions of Brits who don't think a US trade deal is worth lowering our standards for, tell Liam Fox today:

To Liam Fox MP - 

I do not accept that lowering food standards is a price worth paying for a trade deal with the United States of America. 

Allowing cheap import of US products into the UK threatens our animal welfare and our local farmers.

I call upon you to protect British food standards and to rule out US produce that does not meet those standards.

Make this clear today.

    It won’t be people like Jacob Rees Mogg who suffer from lower food standards. Improving food standards and animal welfare has been a joint EU initiative. People who complain about EU regulations don’t realise how many Britains have been involved in making these rules.

    You are rich enough not to eat America’s rubbish but a lot of the people you are supposed to represent are not. Why are you even in parliament?

    Too many Right Wing Conservatives looking after their own interests. They completely ignore the fact that they are being paid handsomely to represent the rest of us.

    We won’t tolerate a lowering of standards so don’t even try to make a deal with the USA.

    Desmond Farthing Allowing chlorine washed chicken into our markets means we tacitly support the inhumane animal husbandry practices that the American economy forces onto its farmers.

    If you wouldn’t eat it or feed it to your beloved children, then don’t bring it into our country!!!
