Yesterday the Commons voted on 11 of the 35 measures where the Coalition government intends to opt back in to EU jurisdiction. We were told by the Home Secretary that a vote on the 11 would be taken by the government to be a vote on all 35. If the government had lost the vote they would have dropped all 35.
I wished the government to negotiate an extradition agreement and related agreements with the rest of the EU as it has done with other countries, rather than opt in to these measures. I spoke against the government surrendering UK Parliamentary control over these criminal justice matters. I voted against the proposal on the 11 measures. The government won by 464 to 38 votes, with almost 150 MPs abstaining or not present.
