EUROPEAN ARREST WARRANT (5706/06)
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
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.
