Left attempt to jeopardise the CETA agreement failed

By a large majority, MEPs rejected motion calling for the deal, known as CETA, to be referred to the European Court of Justice for an opinion on its compatibility with EU treaties. If approved, the move could have stopped the deal being introduced for up to two years

By a large majority, MEPs rejected motion calling for the deal, known as CETA, to be referred to the European Court of Justice for an opinion on its compatibility with EU treaties. If approved, the move could have stopped the deal being introduced for up to two years. The motions was drafted by 89 MEPs from left and far-left political groups.

David Campbell-Bannerman, the ECR trade spokesman on CETA said: “Once CETA is implemented, Canada would immediately eliminate €500 million of duties on goods originating in the EU. Nearly 92 per cent of EU agriculture and food products would be exported to Canada duty-free. This agreement will create new and exciting opportunities for small and medium sized enterprises across the UK and other EU Member States, and allow for easier access to the Canadian market. The Left including Labour MEPs should be ashamed for trying to block it.”
