Danny Kruger MP and John Redwood oppose WHO pandemic treaty in HoC Committee

Speech on the proposed World Health Treaty – 17 April 2023 | Danny Kruger

Today I gave a speech on the proposed World Health Treaty, he writes on his site.  Click link.

He suggests Britain opts out of the treaty which can be passed with only 75% majority, despite Britain being the second largest contributor to the WHO.  The government is not even proposing to discuss the pandemic treaty in parliament.

The Treaty is a major threat to parliamentary sovereignty.

My Intervention on the Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response: International Agreement

John Redwood (Wok) (Con):
I am glad the hon. Gentleman agrees that we needed better parliamentary scrutiny and more options for the handling of the pandemic but, given that that is the case, how on earth does it make sense to give away powers to an international quango, which will then instruct future Ministers to do these things, with Parliament being told that it has no right to talk about it or to vote on it?

Justin Madders:
If that was how it was going to proceed, I would agree with the right hon. Gentleman, but I do not believe that is the case. Any Government Member concerned about parliamentary sovereignty and scrutiny would not have voted for the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill, which has put thousands of laws into the hands of Ministers without any parliamentary accountability.

My Intervention on the Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response: International Agreement

John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con):
To colleagues who like this treaty, is the easy answer not that we will, of course, remain members of the WHO, read its advice and accept that advice where we wish? Why should we have to accept advice when the WHO may get it wrong, and we can do nothing about it because it decides, not us?

Danny Kruger (Devizes) (Con):
That is absolutely right. We have the opportunity to say no, and it is an opportunity we need to take. Once we have said yes, we are then under the obligation to introduce, potentially, terrible infringements on liberty. I will make some more progress and then let Members intervene.

Danny Kruger also tried opposing the vaccine mentioning deaths and injuries –
