  David Campbell Bannerman (ECR ), blue-card answer . – I think the fact, as with all free trade agreements, is that it is better for people on the high street. It actually reduces the cost of food, for example seafood and meat coming from Canada. That is good for the poorest people in Europe. So that is what these free trade agreements are about. It is good for jobs, our ability to sell services to Canada, and to break into provincial government in Canada. It is good for that, and all of this comes without actually selling out in terms of workers’ rights, or social or environmental protection. So it is a good deal. For heaven’s sake, support it, otherwise we will not get any other deal done by the EU.

(Applause)
