'BRITISH SOVEREIGNTY AND THE EU DEBATE'

Sunday Telegraph – 31 January 2016

Whatever one's views on the EU debate, many will agree that parliamentary sovereignty should be the key focus in any renegotiations. It goes to the heart of our relationship with the EU, covering such areas as the primacy of our domestic laws, control of our borders and the setting of business regulation.

We are disappointed that the Government's renegotiations are not addressing this. We therefore look forward to the forthcoming House of Commons debate, on February 4, and hope the Prime Minister will personally take the opportunity to respond for the Government.
