Did the Leader of the House observe Foreign Office Questions yesterday? When I raised the extraordinary proposition of British people having to have a Euro-passport, the Foreign Office refused to give any assurance that this would be debated before a decision was made. Ministers said that this was a matter for the Leader of the House. I am now giving the Leader of the House the opportunity to give us an assurance that we shall debate the question before any decision is taken outside this House.
