'Rough Trade' is a new report on the threat of TTIP to small UK businesses, released by campaign group War on Want. It points out that although more than 99% of private sector businesses in the UK are classed as 'small', with less than 50 employees, small business associations have had no input into the content of TTIP.

According to the European Commission's own survey for TTIP, less than 0.5% of UK small businesses are involved in export to US markets. 'TTIP was crafted by and for big business' says the report.
