European Union (Approvals) Bill — Clause 1 — Limitation of Scope of Europe for Citizens Programme — 27 Jan 2014 at 16:45

The majority of MPs voted not to limit the EU's "Europe for Citizens" programme to education about, and reflection on, the Holocaust, armed conflicts and totalitarian regimes in Europe’s history and against explicitly forbidding the programme from promoting European citizenship, integration or institutions.

The amendment rejected was:

  • amendment 4, in page 1, line 4, leave out subsection (2) and insert—
  • ‘(2) The draft decision of the Council of the European Union under Article 352 of TFEU[1] to adopt the Council Regulation on the deposit of the historical archives of the institutions at the European University Institute in Florence (document number 6867/ 13) is approved.
  • (2A) The draft decision of the Council of the European Union under Article 352 of TFEU to adopt the Council Regulation establishing for the period 2014-2020 the programme "Europe for Citizens" (document number 12557/13) shall be approved once—
  • (a) the Secretary of State has laid a report before both Houses of Parliament stating that—
  • (i) expenditure under the programme may be used only to fund education about and reflection on the Holocaust, armed conflicts and totalitarian regimes in Europe’s history; and
  • (ii) no expenditure under the programme may be used to fund the promotion of European Union citizenship, integration or institutions; and
  • (b) following the laying of this report, both Houses of Parliament have passed a resolution that the draft decision shall be approved.’.

The effect of the amendments would have been to add the requirements described in subsections (a) and (b) restricting the scope of the "Europe for Citizens" programme.

MPs were debating the European Union (Approvals) Bill[2]

The Bill approves the "Europe for Citizens" Programme and gives it a budget of €185 million for 2014-20 (down from €229 million originally proposed).[3] Activities to be funded under the programme come under two themes: "Remembrance and European Citizenship" and "Democratic engagement and civic participation".

During a previous debate on the Bill an estimation of the UK's contribution to the costs of the "Europe for Citizens" Programme as being £2 million to £3 million a year, was provided in a speech by Edward Vaizey MP (Wantage, Conservative)[4]
