‘The NHS will be at the mercy of predatory US healthcare firms if a controversial trade deal with Washington goes through, a top Tory admitted.
Trade Minister Ian Livingston claimed it was “not necessary” to exempt the NHS from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement, known as TTIP.
But health campaigners fear the free trade pact will open up the NHS to profit-hungry American firms.
Labour MP Grahame Morris, who sits on the Commons health committee, warned: “This is a sinister trade deal.
“If it goes through without any changes, it will make the privatisation of services like the NHS irreversible.” ‘
