United Kingdom Parliamentary Sovereignty Bill — Second Reading — 18 Mar 2011 at 13:19

The majority of MPs voted against reading the United Kingdom Parliamentary Sovereignty Bill[1] a second time, thus preventing it from becoming law. The Bill would have required a referendum to be held for any new legislation which "increases the functions of the European Union affecting the United Kingdom." The Bill also stated: The Sovereignty of the United Kingdom Parliament is hereby reaffirmed".
