Release TPPA information

Melissa A made this Official Information request to Minister of Trade

The request was refused by Minister of Trade.

From: Melissa A

Dear Minister of Trade,

I want to know what is inside the Trans-Pacific Partnership as it is directly related to my future as a New Zealand teenager. This deal has the potential to affect the rest of my life. I want to know what is being discussed before it is approved, to make sure that my rights and the freedom of other New Zealanders are not being sold away.

If Malaysia can release TPPA text before it’s signed and say no deal without “fast track”, why can't NZ?

Yours faithfully,
Melissa A
