Motion text

That this House congratulates the Jospin government in France for its decision not to take part in continued negotiations on the proposed MAI treaty; recognises that this has also strengthened opposition to the treaty amongst countries in the developing world; and urges all governments to develop international treaties which promote civic rights over corporate rights, sustainability over exploitation, and democratic accountability over global deregulation.
