EU Matters in Parliament

The progress on the European Union (Amendment) Bill in the House of Commons has dominated business there in recent weeks.


This week the Lib Dems walked out in a row over a referendum - and a big demonstration was held outside Parliament yesterday.

The Lords will have a European debate this afternoon - not on the Bill - that is expected to arrive in a few weeks but Lord Grenfell will move that this House takes note of the Report of the European Union Committee on The Commission’s Annual Policy Strategy for 2008 (23rd Report, Session 2006-07, HL Paper 123)

The Report is available at http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld200607/ldselect/ldeucom/123/123.pdf
