Changes In Legislative Procedures

EDM number 1336 in 1993-94, proposed by Teddy Taylor on 15/06/1994.

That this House, wishing to maintain its tradition of keeping its procedures up to date, and recognising the legal and consequential costs of European Court judgements which oblige the United Kingdom to amend or effectively to scrap legislation passed years ago, and accepting the implications of the fact that loosely worded European legislation does not achieve real clarity until the European Commission invites the Court to determine its precise meaning, believes that it would be in the public and the taxpayers' interest to submit all new Parliamentary legisation before the House of Lords stage to the officials of the Commission of the European Union to establish whether they consider that its contents are in keeping with the various treaties approved by Parliament.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
