EU Select Committee
Report published 30 March 2016. Awaiting Government Response and debate
The Lords EU Committee published a report inviting the Government to set out a positive, inclusive vision of the UK's role in a reformed European Union ahead of the referendum on EU membership.
The report, entitled The EU referendum and EU reform, examines the Government’s objectives on EU reform, and how they evolved in the run up to the agreement reached by the European Council on 19 February. The report also reviews the Government’s engagement with the devolved institutions in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the extent of its consultation with stakeholders in developing its reform objectives.
The committee considers how the Government, in campaigning for the UK to remain in the EU, should present its vision of the UK’s future role in a reformed EU.
The report concludes that the deal reached in Brussels was a "significant achievement", which justifies the Government in arguing that the UK has passed the point of integrating any further with the EU.
