The next round of negotiations for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will take place in July. The UK reading room will be open in time to access documents related to this round and will be accessible to Members of both Houses and Whitehall officials.

Parliamentarians and officials will be required to respect EU rules governing the protection of classified TTIP documents made available in the reading room, which in practice means not sharing them or their contents with anyone who is not entitled to access the room.
