MPs to hold second evidence session on European Union Bill

25 November 2010

This is the second evidence session of the Committee's inquiry into the European Union Bill. Further evidence sessions will be announced shortly.

The European Union Bill, which was presented to Parliament on 11 November, sets out the circumstances under which further transfers of competence and/or power to the EU will be subject to a referendum or will require an Act of Parliament or a Resolution of both Houses.

The Bill also seeks to place on a statutory footing the common law principle of parliamentary sovereignty with respect to directly applicable or directly effective EU law.
