Oxfam And The Lisbon Treaty

EDM number 990 in 2007-08, proposed by Ian Davidson on 20/02/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Charities, EU law and treaties and EU political integration.

That this House notes that in an e-mail sent to the hon. Member for Glasgow South West on 17th January Oxfam states that it `. . . has no stance on whether or not the EU Treaty is adopted . . . these issues are ouside our competence and mandate'; notes that Oxfam was cited by the Foreign Secretary in the Second Reading Debate of 21st January 2008 as an organisation supporting the development co-operation measures in the Treaty as part of an argument that Parliament should pass the European Union (Amendment) Bill; notes also that the e-mail goes on to state that `. . . on the Treaty . . . there are . . . a number of caveats and concerns, which we and other development NGOs have raised'; and believes that this clarification of the position of Oxfam should be declared when citing the support of this organisation in relation to EU development policy and Lisbon Treaty matters.

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