EU: UK Membership

Volume 694: debated on Wednesday 18 July 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there is any conflict between the aims announced in their Green Paper, The Governance of Britain (Cm 7170), and the United Kingdom's continued membership of the European Union, bearing in mind the quantity of British law which now originates in Brussels. [HL4749]

The Government's Green Paper, The Governance of Britain, is the first step in a national debate on further constitutional reform. It sets out the ways in which we can reinvigorate our democracy and make both the Executive and Parliament more accountable to the people.

These proposals do not present any conflict with the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union.
