Remuneration of EU Staff
Bill Presented — European Convention on Human Rights (Temporary Withdrawal) Bill
Chloe Smith (The Economic Secretary to the Treasury; Norwich North, Conservative)
I certainly agree that everybody associated with European institutions needs to show restraint at this time, as I think the debate will show in some detail, so I very much welcome my hon. Friend’s intervention. He will be reassured that alongside the measures I have already laid out, we intend to pursue the modernisation of EU institutions, in order to help them become more effective, and to encourage a better geographical spread of EU officials from across member states.
