Boris Johnson faces Tory revolt as MPs demand China faces trade sanctions

BORIS Johnson faces a Tory revolt this week from MPs demanding China trade sanctions.

The PM is under mounting pressure to let British courts decide if the communist regime is committing genocide against the Uighurs and other Muslim minorities.

About 30 rebels are expected to back an amendment to the Trade Bill which would force ministers to block deals with countries the High Court has ruled are guilty of the crime.

But the move is gaining support from other paries, the Jewish and Muslim communities and the International Bar Association.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and Trade supremo Liz Truss were ordered to call MPs yesterday to try to avoid defeat.

Tory MP Nusrat Ghani, who is backing the amendment, said: “We’ve got to be on the right side of history here. This is Britain’s first chance outside the EU to show what our values really mean.

“Why on Earth would we want to use our new found freedom to trade with states that commit and profit from genocide? Britain is better than that.”
