European Constitution

Volume 454: debated on Tuesday 5 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which clauses of the European Constitution have been put into practice by means other than secondary legislation; and which agencies provided for under the constitution have been established. (107133)

No provisions of the European Constitutional Treaty have been put into effect; that would only be possible if all the member states of the EU ratify that treaty. The EU continues to exercise the powers conferred by the existing treaties, including powers to create agencies.
