EU: Legislation

Volume 716: debated on Thursday 7 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will publish the recent opinions of the European Commission regarding the United Kingdom allegedly not giving full effect to European Union equality legislation. [HL826]

The understanding between the European Commission and member states is that infraction correspondence remains confidential. The Commission publishes the fact that a reasoned opinion has been sent but not the letter itself. The Government will therefore not be publishing the two reasoned opinions that the Commission sent to us on 20 November.
