Parliament: Number of Members

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 5 December 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assessment they have made of the current number of MPs and Peers in light of the changing relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom. [HL623]

The Government have carried out no such assessment. The relationship between the EU and the UK is governed by the EU treaties. Member states agree any changes to the treaties and the implementation of such changes has always been subject to approval by Parliament.
