The EU-US FTA is expected to be a mixed agreement to which the UK is individually a party. As such, it would be subject to agreement by each Member State (including the UK), the EU Council (representing governments of the EU countries) and the European Parliament. As part of this process, the UK Parliament would receive the complete draft text of the agreement in order to scrutinise it through debates in both Houses.
