European Union Bill — Inconsequential wording change : supporting to permitting — 8 Jun 2011 at 18:25

The majority of members of the House of Lords voted to make an inconsequential change to the wording of the European Union Bill[1].

The majority of Contents agreed to make the following amendment to Clause 1 of the European Union Bill[2]:

‘leave out out "supporting" and insert "permitting"’ from this text:

'A reference to a Minister of the Crown voting in favour of or otherwise supporting a decision is a reference to a Minister of the Crown voting in favour of or otherwise supporting the decision in the European Council or the Council.'

Clause 1 offers explanatory notes that aid the understanding and intended meaning of terms used in Part 1 of the bill.

The debate reveals the amendment was proposed "in a purely formal way", in an effort to seek reassurances, so apparently was not intended to be, and doesn't appear to be, substantive.

About the Project

The Public Whip is a not-for-profit, open source website created in 2003 by Francis Irving and Julian Todd and now run by Bairwell Ltd.

There are lots of plans afoot, including extensive redevelopment of the site and plans for new functionality. To keep up with what's happening, please check out the blog. We're working on updating all the contact details throughout the site, but if you'd like to talk to us about the project, please email [email protected]
