To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to the written ministerial statement of 6 July 2010, Official Report, columns 6-7WS, on the European Parliament Transitionary Protocol, if he will place in the Library a copy of the (a) agreed Protocol and (b) minutes of the intergovernmental conference.
I will place a copy of the signed protocol in the Library of both Houses. There are no minutes of the intergovernmental conference (IGC), though the principle was agreed by the European Council in its Conclusions of December 2008 and June 2009. These are available in the House Library.
The then Minister for Europe informed the Scrutiny Committees last December that an IGC would be taking place and for what reasons, and the hon. Member will be aware of my written ministerial statement after the IGC had taken place.
