§ Lord Kilclooney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether it is proposed to retain the United Kingdom's role as a Guarantor Power if Cyprus becomes a member of the European Union. [HL1054]
§ Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
The Treaty of Guarantee, agreed at the time of Cyprus's independence in 1960, which provides for Britain, Greece and Turkey to act as Guarantor Powers, will not be affected by Cyprus's accession to the EU.
