No Confidence In The Prime Minister

EDM number 187 in 1989-90, proposed by Paddy Ashdown on 12/12/1989.

That this House has no confidence in the Prime Minister, following her total isolation at the Strasbourg Summit of the European Community and her failure to represent the interests of Britain at that summit; condemns in particular her failure to announce an early date for full British membership of the European Monetary System; regrets profoundly her isolation on the issue of Economic and Monetary Union and on the Social Charter; believes that she has done nothing to protect British interests in the Council of Ministers; notes that Britain will have to pay a heavy price in the future to enable the Prime Minister to live in the past; and calls for an early opportunity to test her approach in debate in the House of Commons and to contrast it with the growing commitment of the British people to a new democratic and united Europe.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
