Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


TAXATION SYSTEMS AND CUSTOMS IN THE COMMUNITY (9500/06, 9609/06)

Letter from the Chairman to Rt Hon Dawn Primarolo MP, Paymaster General, HM Treasury

  Thank you for your Explanatory Memoranda EM 9500/06 and EM 9609/06 dated 6 and 8 June 2006 which Sub-Committe A (Economic and Financial Affairs and International Trade) considered at their meeting on 18 July 2006. The Committe decided to clear this document from scrutiny.

  On the legal base, we are puzzled by your view that tax legislation should be handled using a legal base which requires unanimity in the Council. We would appreciate more details of your analysis of the use of Article 95 together with your reasons for requiring unanimity voting on programmes designed to further administrative co-operation.

18 July 2006
