Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 28 March 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs what steps the UK is taking under the Fundamental Rights of Citizenship programme (EU budget code 18 04 06); and if she will make a statement. (130637)

We expect the decision establishing the Fundamental Rights and Citizenship programme 2007-13 formally to be adopted at the Justice and Home Affairs Council of 19-20 April 2007. Once the decision comes into force, the European Commission will propose an Annual Work programme determining the thematic areas to pursue.
