Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from the Chairman to Andy Burnham MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Home Office

  The revised report from the Commission was considered by Sub-Committe E (Law and Institutions) at its meeting on 8 March. We note that the Commission has also asked for revised comments from Member States and it is clear from your very full Explanatory Memorandum that the concerns you expressed, when the first version of the report was published, have not yet been addressed by the Commission. It would be helpful if you could let us know the outcome of your discussions with the Commission on this.

  May I also take this opportunity to thank you for your letter of 22 February[152] providing the further information requested at the meeting on 18 January. It is very helpful and will be taken into account in the brief Report which the Committee is now preparing and hopes to publish shortly after Easter.

  The Committee has decided to clear the Commission's report from scrutiny.
