HC Deb 01 December 2003 vol 415 cc10-1W
Mr. Cash

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will place in the Library the opinion of the Head of the Council of Ministers Legal Service on the question of the formulation of Articles 1–10 concerning the primacy of Union Law (CIG 37–03, p3). [140697]

Mr. MacShane

There is no formal Council Legal Service Opinion on this subject. The Presidency proposal on this subject, found in CIG 52/03, proposes that the Intergovernmental Conference note that this Article reflects existing European Court of Justice case-law. We understand this is in line with the views of the Council Legal Service.

Copies of document CIG 52/03 will be placed in the Library of the House.

Forward to
