Terms and process of the TPPA

Rosie Gallen made this Official Information request to Minister of Trade

The request was refused by Minister of Trade.

From: Rosie Gallen

Dear Minister of Trade,
I am concerned with the lack of understanding and awareness of the terms currently being negotiated as part of the TPPA and the potential for negative impacts on our country and how it may impinge our sovereignty. Please can you release the draft terms of the TPPA as they stand at the moment. I'd also like to understand what public input is being planned and on which clauses. Please can you supply this information under the Official Information Act.

Yours faithfully,
Rosie Gallen
