A vote due to take place in the European Parliament has been postponed. However, Labour's policy position on TTIP remains unchanged and will vote the same way whenever the vote is held.
Labour MEPs have spoken out against the postponement of a European Parliament vote on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
Jude Kirton-Darling MEP, Labour's European Parliament spokesperson on TTIP, said:
"We are deeply disappointed by the decision to postpone the vote on TTIP. MEPs have been denied the chance to vote for our amendments and the European Parliament will have to wait to put its position on the record.
"Labour MEPs oppose the inclusion of ISDS (Investor-State Dispute Settlement) in TTIP, have demanded security for our NHS and public services, and the maintenance of high labour standards and environmental protections.
"We will continue to push for these, and will work for the best possible trade deal, one that has the potential to boost our economy and bring jobs to Britain."
