Alert me about debates like this
To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether it is appropriate for a European Commissioner to comment on the behaviour of a political party in the European Parliament.
I refer the noble Lord to the Code of Conduct for European Commissioners. This makes clear that Commissioners retain the right to express their personal opinions.
The current Code of Conduct is available on the European Commission website at: http://ec.europa.eu/commission_2010-2014/pdf/code_conduct_en.pdf
A copy of the currrent Code is attached.
