Conservative Party MEPs are whipped to vote for the UK to join the Euro

The report is from no less authoritatiave source than Conservative Home, linked from here, and is as follows:

Tory MEPs vote for Euro membership

ConservativeHome recently noted how Tory MEPs voted in favour of a greater European dimension to education. Today they voted for a report on the European Central Bank which included these words (paragraph 9, page 6):

"Supports the introduction of the Euro by all the member states."

The decision to whip Tory MEPs in favour of the report appears to have been taken after pressure from the EPP.

Five Tory MEPs resisted the whip and rejected the report: Martin Callanan, Daniel Hannan, Roger Helmer, Chris Heaton-Harris and Syed Kamall.
