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.

    Having family we visit in USA means we see this awful stuff first hand

    We only buy free range organic chicken there but all other meat is routinely fed hormones and antibiotics and intensively reared. No thought for animal welfare

    Mr Fox and his ilk are clearly only concerned about the state of their own bank balance, not the good of the nation. And certainly not the good of the people they duped into voting for this disgrace to our country!

    Maintaining high standards in food production is a British achievement that should not be surrendered to suit USA profits. British standards protect the people not the profits of mega corporations

    We should not be looking at the USA as a good example of anything, they do not care about the health and well-being of any of their people. We should work on transforming our country for the better and lead by example and show them how a country should be run for the benefit for all.
