Profoundly Undemocratic': UK Critics Slam TTIP Reading Room Restrictions

Following the establishment of a TTIP reading room in Germany, British politicians will now also have the opportunity to run their eyes over the controversial trade agreement. However just as in Germany, there are concerns over the transparency of the process, and the deal itself.

In the German reading room, MPs who register for access are only allowed to spend two hours reading the documents, while mobile phones and other electronic devices must be stored away in a secure locker.

The TTIP document is available on a computer screen that isn't connected to the Internet, and while lawmakers can make notes, they cannot copy any quotes from the consolidated texts and they cannot share the details of the agreement in public or in parliament.
