European Legislation

Comment 26th August 2010

Do not just accept european legisaltion when handed down from Brussels. All such legislation should be treated as proposals until the UK parliament has examined and debated it. Only after successfully passing through this process should any legislation be made into British law.

Why does this matter?

There are many examples of european legislation which do not fit the UK and yet it is simply passed into UK law by Statutory Orders or Orders in Council. Often these regulations are "gold plated" before being made law.

We would do well to adopt the French attitude in this area – if they don't like it they ignore it.

This increase of legislative instruments has raised the level of beaurocracy and red tape to unacceptable heights.
