§ 49. Mr. Jenkin
To ask the Lord President of the Council what plans he has considered to improve the scrutiny of EC legislation by the United Kingdom Parliament in advance of its enactment by the Council of Ministers.

I expect to respond shortly to the report by the Select Committee on European Legislation entitled "Scrutiny after Maastricht" (First Special Report, 1993–94) which contained detailed proposals for the scrutiny of legislative proposals under the co-decision procedure.
