Opt Out from European Union Police and Criminal Justice Measures — 15 Jul 2013 at 20:16

John Baron MP, Basildon and Billericay voted against committing to continue participation in the European Arrest Warrant and other schemes when opting out of police and criminal justice measures.

The majority of MPs voted to reject a proposal to add a condition to the UK's proposed opt out from EU police and criminal justice measures requiring continuing participation in the European Arrest Warrant and other joint processes.

MPs were debating a government motion on their proposed opt out from EU police and criminal justice measures; an alternative motion, which was rejected, was moved by Chris Bryant MP (Rhondda, Labour) read:

  • believes the UK’s notification to the Council, Commission and Presidency to opt out of all EU police and criminal justice measures adopted before December 2009 can only be made once the Council and Commission have committed to the UK’s ongoing participation in the European Arrest Warrant, the Schengen Information System II, Joint Investigations Teams, EU Council decision 2000/375/JHA on combating internet child pornography, EU Council decision 2002/348/JHA on international football security co-operation, exchange of Criminal Records, Europol and Eurojust, which will form part of the Government’s formal application to rejoin the measures in Command Paper 8671 in accordance with Article 10(5) of Protocol 36 to the TFEU

This vote was followed by a vote on the government motion.
