Eurojust

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with Members of the European Parliament on the future of Eurojust; and if he will make a statement. (208736)

I have been asked to reply.

Home Office Ministers have regular contact with Members of the European Parliament (MEP) to discuss the full range of JHA business. In relation to the future development of Eurojust, my officials briefed UK MEPs on the Government’s position on the draft Council Decision on the strengthening of Eurojust in October 2007 and May 2008. The opinion of the European Parliament on that proposal is expected during the plenary session of 16-19 June 2008. In relation to the Government’s position on the future development of Eurojust, I refer the hon. Member to my answer of 13 May 2008, Official Report, column 1564W.
