Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted in the minority (No).

The majority of MPs voted (in a deferred division) in favour of the motion which read:[1]

  • This House
  • takes note of European Union document number 7828/07 and ADD1, Commission Communication, GALILEO at a cross-road-the implementation of the European GNSS programmes; and
  • endorses the Government's approach to discussions on this document.

A very similar vote occurred without a debate four months later.[2]
