UCL PhD student submits evidence for House of Lord enquiry
31 March 2014
Heleen Jalvingh (UCL School of Public Policy) has contributed evidence to a report on the role of national parliaments in the EU, published this week by the House of Lords EU Committee.
The House of Lord's EU Committee has been set up to consider EU documents in advance of decisions being taken on them in Brussels,in order to influence the Government’s position and to hold them to account. It also conducts enquiries and makes report, which are offered as a contribution to ongoing debates, on the basis of collected evidence.
The Committee's latest report argues that it has never been more important that national parliaments should play a full and active role in the functioning of the European Union, both individually and collectively, as set out in the Treaty on European Union. However, the Committee holds that much more could be achieved, within the existing Treaty structure. Its report aims at a wide range of policymakers and others, within the UK and across the EU, and suggests a range of practical options, which could improve the involvement of national parliaments in the formulation and implementation of EU policies.
