§ Mr. Rowlands
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will list those decisions made by majority voting within the European Community since the entry into force of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1986; and on each occasion which way the United Kingdom voted.
A detailed list of all decisions made by majority voting since the entry into force of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1986, including a record of which way the United Kingdom voted in each case, could be produced only at disproportionate cost. Between entry into force of the Single European Act on 1 July 1987 and 30 June 1991, 259 majority votes were held. The United Kingdom voted against on 36 occasions. On decisions taken under the provisions of the Single European Act itself, the United Kingdom has been outvoted only three times in 99 decisions taken during the same period.
