Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Bill
Lord Bassam of Brighton (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Home Office; Labour)
My Lords, I cannot predict from the Dispatch Box what issues may be the subject of any future referendum. Any Minister who did so would be very foolish.
I have never attended a meeting of the council of Britain in Europe. I thought that I had resigned from that body. If I have not done so, I shall make sure that I do so pretty sharply.
