Green groups in last-ditch bid to block UK’s Australia trade deal

The Guardian 19th July 2022

Environmental campaigners have launched a last-ditch legal bid to prevent or delay the UK’s trade deal with Australia.

The groups – include WWF, Sustain, Green Alliance, Compassion in World Farming, the Soil Association, the Trade Justice Movement and the Tenant Farmers’ Association.

Under the Australian trade deal, the UK could be opened up to Australian beef and other farm products that are subject to lower standards, including on the use of antibiotics on livestock and of harmful pesticides, than are legal in the UK.
