European Union Bill — Clause 6 — Referendum on Emergency Financial Assistance for EU Member States — 25 Jan 2011 at 20:30

Stephen Mosley MP, City of Chester voted against requiring a referendum prior to UK giving emergency financial assistance via the EU to member states other than the Republic of Ireland.

The majority of MPs voted against requiring a referendum prior to UK giving emergency financial assistance via the EU to member states other than the Republic of Ireland.

The rejected amendment, proposed by William Cash MP (Stone, Conservative) stated[1]:

page 5, line 35, at end insert-

'(l) a decision to extend the use of the European Financial Stability Mechanism to member states other than the Republic of Ireland.'.

This would have affected clause 6(4) of the bill[2][3] which lists the decisions which must not be adopted by the UK without both an Act of Parliament and approval by a majority of those voting in a referendum
