European Union — A Citizens' Agenda — 26 Oct 2006 at 15:52

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.

The Aye-voters successfully carried the motion[1] that the House of Commons should support the Government in welcoming the principles behind the European Union document, A Citizen’s Agenda, and in the European Commission’s commitment to taking forward the Hampton Court agenda.

Both of these agendas deal with promoting the advantages of continued European membership and integration.
