Lisbon Treaty final version

The Treaty in its final form will not be available to Parliament, whose powers it seeks to curb contrary to the 1688 Reform Treaty, until after it has been signed as was made clear in a low key announcement in the Lords on 20th Novembere, linked here:

Lord Roberts of Conwy asked Her Majesty’s Government:

    When a printed version of the European Union reform treaty, signed in Lisbon, will be available to Parliament. [HL81]

Baroness Ashton of Upholland: All intergovernmental conference papers, including draft versions of the EU reform treaty, have been placed in the Library of the

20 Nov 2007 : Column WA61

House. The latest text, which has been prepared for discussion in the Jurists-Linguists technical translation group from 12 to 16 November, was circulated to Parliament on 31 October. We will continue to forward any further draft texts to Parliament as soon as we receive them.

We expect to lay the final EU reform treaty before Parliament shortly after formal signature by Heads of State and Government at the 13 December meeting.
