European Communities (Amendment) Bill — [4th Allotted Day] — 17 Oct 2001 at 21:44

Mr Paul Marsden MP, Shrewsbury and Atcham voted with the majority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The Foreign Secretary is representing the United Kingdom at a meeting today in Luxembourg of the General Affairs Council, which will discuss the European Union's overall counter-terrorism policy in response to the atrocities on 11 September. In particular, EU Foreign Ministers will review progress on the package of measures called for at the emergency European Council on 21 September. They will also discuss the way forward on Afghanistan and how best to ensure a better future for the country and its people. The Foreign Secretary will then immediately travel to Turkey for further talks. The Turks are an important part of the international coalition against terrorism, and we will continue to work closely with them and all other allies in the coalition to ensure that terrorism does not prevail.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:-

The House divided: Ayes 392, Noes 158.
