Racism and Xenophobia

European Union Documents – in the House of Commons at 7:58 pm on 20th May 2003.

Alert me about debates like this

That this House takes note of European Union Document No. 7280/03, draft Council Framework Decision on combating racism and xenophobia; agrees with the Government that it is appropriate to establish minimum standards in the criminal law to tackle racism and xenophobia at a European level and that this proposal strikes the right balance between protecting our communities from racial hatred and violence whilst respecting our right to freedom of expression; and supports the Government's efforts to secure agreement on this Framework Decision.
