Motion text

That this House, deeply conscious of the democratic rights of the British people and confident of their continued capacity for successful democratic self-government, declines to support any revision of the Rome Treaty that would require a further transfer of power from Parliament to the institutions of the European Community; and specifically rejects those proposals in the Delors Report which call for a European Central Bank, permanently locked exchange rates and a single European currency.

There are no withdrawn signatures for this motion.

PARLIAMENT AND THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY (Amendment 1)
leave out from 'self-government' to end and add 'and of their abilities to play a full role within wider democratic institutions, calls upon the Government to immediately introduce proposals to remove all impediments to full scale electoral registration within the United Kingdom, including the repeal of the poll tax; and believes that moves towards the further transfer of industrial, economic, financial and commercial powers to the European Community should first of all be preceded by a full scale democratisation of the Community's institutions and its make-up, involving the re-writing of the Treaty of Rome and the opening up of the Community to accommodate other European nations, including the newly established democracies of Eastern Europe.
