European Community Documents — Funding of European political parties — 12 Dec 2007 at 19:05

Anne Begg MP, Aberdeen South voted with the majority (Aye).

The majority Aye voters successfully carried the motion[1] that the Government should support the adoption of a European draft regulation:

  • 'governing political parties at European level and the rules regarding their funding[2].'

These regulations are symbolic in that they legitimise the idea of pan-European political parties and that a European body is needed to set rules on how they operate.
