MPs have voted against an amendment to the Trade Bill which its supporters claimed would have protected the NHS and publicly funded health and care services from any form of control from outside the UK.
Green Party MP Caroline Lucas put forward the amendment, New Clause 17, with the support of Labour leader Keir Starmer and a number of other senior opposition MPs.
As well as being claimed to protect the NHS from foreign control, New Clause 17 listed other measures to protect publicly funded health and care services including:
Providing a comprehensive publicly funded health service free at the point of delivery
Protecting the employment rights or terms and conditions of employment for public sector employees and those working in publicly funded health or care sectors
Regulating and maintaining the quality and safety of health or care services
Regulate and controlling the pricing and reimbursement systems for the purchase of medicines or medical devices
Regulating and maintaining the level of protection afforded in relation to patient data, public health data and publicly provided social care data relating to UK citizens
It was voted down by 340 votes to 251 in parliament last night. No Conservative MPs voted for the Labour amendment and no Labour MPs voted against it. Plaid Cymru MPs voted for the amendment.
Conwy councillor Aaron Wynne said: "The NHS should be a red-line in any post-Brexit trade deal. Our health service is the envy of the world, and we must all do what we can to protect it from overseas businesses who seek to turn a profit."
Was the weekly clapping for the NHS all in vain?
Trade Secretary Liz Truss MP said the services the NHS provides "will not be on the table".

One of the Welsh Conservatives who opposed the amendment, former Welsh Secretary David Jones, said "the Trade Bill is simply a continuity bill and does not affect future trade deals with third countries; the amendment was therefore at best misconceived and otiose".
