To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure that their policies of ensuring clear labelling of food to support people to make informed healthy choices, enabled by using food labelling to avoid foods high in sugar, salt, and fat, are not compromised by any trade agreement reached with the government of the United States.

The Government has been very clear that any future trade deals must work for UK consumers, not compromising on our standards. The Government will continue to support healthy choices through clear labelling, while respecting our WTO obligations to ensure that technical regulations do not create unnecessary obstacles to international trade.
