Select Committee on European Union Forty-Ninth Report


Letter from The Chairman of the Committee to Bob Ainsworth MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Home Office

  The Draft Council Decision was considered by Subcommittee E (Law and Institutions) at its meeting on 9 October. As you indicate in your Explanatory Memorandum it is necessary to ascertain more precisely the need for a new network and to identify what added value action at Union level would give. The Committee shares the concerns expressed by the Government in this regard. It would be helpful if those promoting this Decision could supply a detailed costs/benefits analysis of the measure.

  The Committee decided to hold the proposal under scrutiny. We would be grateful to be kept informed of developments.
