Motion made, and Question put forthwith pursuant to Standing Order No. 102(5) (Standing Committees on European Community Documents),

That this House takes note of European Community Documents Nos. 7398/88 and 4218/90, relating to voting rights for Community nationals in local elections in their Member State of residence; and endorses the Government's view that the right to vote and stand as a candidate in local elections is primarily a matter of political rights which extends beyond the Community's competence and should be left to individual Member States to decide.— [Mr. Patnick.]

Question agreed to.
