Motion text

That this House is intrigued by a letter sent by Conservative Central Office to all Conservative honourable Members, headed 'Referendums Are Dangerous', the day after the Leader of the Opposition demanded a referendum on the Amsterdam Treaty; and believes that the voters who decided that the Conservatives are not fit for Government now have evidence that they are also unfit for opposition.
