Should such a meeting take place, we can return to these matters at other stages...

- Written Answers — Department of Health: EU External Trade: USA (18 December 2014)
George Freeman: ...Partnership (TTIP) will not affect the way the United Kingdom Government runs the National Health Service.

The TTIP could offer great...
