EU: Lisbon Treaty

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 8 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which provisions of the treaty of Lisbon cannot be enacted under the treaty of Nice. [HL5181]

The Government believe that the Lisbon treaty is good for the UK and good for Europe. Parliament has approved the legislation to implement the Lisbon treaty in the UK. We do not support either renegotiating the Lisbon treaty or cherry-picking parts of it and implementing them by a different route.
