Community Legislation (Hansard, 3 December 1990)
HC Deb 03 December 1990 vol 182 c45W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Prime Minister if he will bring forward proposals to strengthen the scrutiny of Community legislation by national Parliaments.

The Prime Minister

It is for each national Parliament to decide its own procedures for the scrutiny of Community legislative proposals. The growing interest in the need for effective arrangements is encouraging.

Mr. Allen

To ask the Prime Minister if he will seek to spread the best practices of national Parliaments to enhance national scrutiny of, and commitment to, proposals emanating from the European Community.

The Prime Minister

We have repeatedly made clear the need for national Parliaments to become more closely involved in Community affairs, and for effective national scrutiny procedures. Our own procedures are widely regarded as among the most thorough in the Community.
