For the first time the UK government effectively confirms the #AustraliaTradeDeal will have corporate courts (aka ISDS). In answer to a question from @drewhendrySNP, Greg Hands says it’s a live negotiation issue.

@drewhendrySNP Right now, two fossil fuel companies are using corporate courts to sue the Netherlands over the phasing out of coal power…
@drewhendrySNP This is especially offensive with the welcome news yesterday that the national courts in the Netherlands are pushing in the right direction and ruled that Shell needs to cut its emissions

Fossil fuel companies shouldn’t be able to use corporate courts to undermine climate action
We need to get rid of corporate courts, not set them in stone.
