The House of Lords is due to consider today secondary legislation relating to the European Parliamentary Elections, which take place on June 4th in the UK.
The three motions are -
European Parliamentary Elections (Amendment) Regulations 2009 Lord Bach to move that the draft Regulations laid before the House on 24 November 2008 be approved.
http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si2009/draft/pdf/ukdsi_9780111470459_en.pdf - These amend the European Parliamentary Elections Regulations 2004 (S.I. 2004/293)(“the 2004 Regulations”), which set out in full how European Parliamentary elections are to be conducted. It's a document worth reading if you enjoy the minutae of the rules governing the conduct of elections.
