Cyprus: Accession To Full Membership To The Eu;amdt. Line 1:

EDM number 1451A1 in 1993-94, proposed by Keith Speed on 13/07/1994.

leave out from `House' to end and add `reminds the Government, that the United Kingdom granted independence to Cyprus in 1960 on the basis of the political equality of the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot peoples, that by Article 1 of the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee the Republic of Cyprus bound itself under international law not participate in any political or economic union with any state whatsoever and that the United Kingdom, by Article 2 of the same treaty, bound itself under international law to prohibit as far as lies within its power all activity having the object of promoting directly or indirectly the union of the Republic of Cyprus with any other state; reminds the Government that it would be unlawful, and deeply offensive to the Turkish Cypriot people for Cyprus to be incorporated into the European Union without their consent; and urges the Government to do all within its power to prevent further consideration of the application for membership made unilaterally by the Greek Cypriot regime, purporting to act on behalf of Cyprus as a whole.'.

This is a ammendment to 1451.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
