Suella Braverman, a former attorney general, tells The Telegraph she has ‘serious concerns’ about proposed treaty.

Britain is “sleepwalking” into a pandemic agreement that risks bouncing it into a “lockdown first” precedent, ministers have been warned.

There is “unease” among MPs about the World Health Organisation’s pandemic treaty, due to be ratified later this month.

MPs are urging the Government not to rush into signing the agreement, which they say has serious implications for the UK’s sovereignty and ability to decide national policies in a future global health crisis.

Critics warn that signing up to the treaty could put member states under pressure to follow the UN agency’s instructions when responding to future pandemics, which could include measures such as lockdowns, vaccine passports, border closures and quarantine.
