star this property answer text <p>The EU Referendum Bill introduced to Parliament on 28 May 2015 dis-applies section 125 of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendum Act 2000 for the purposes of the referendum. The statutory restrictions contained in section 125 would have prevented many types of Government business in the final 28 days of the campaign dealing with any issue raised by the referendum question, presenting serious operational difficulties. In order to fulfil the manifesto commitment on which it was elected, the Government will also need to be able to set out the results of its renegotiation and its view on those results. The Government therefore does not believe that it would have been appropriate for the section 125 restrictions to apply in full.</p><p>The designated organisations for the yes and no campaigns should take the lead in a vibrant and robust debate. The Government will work with interested parties before bringing forward an amendment that will ensure there is a mechanism for making clear that, in the four weeks before polling day, the Government will not undertake a range of activity which many regard as the province of the designated organisations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government's priorities are to reform the EU so that it is more flexible, competitive and democratically accountable. We want to see further deepening of the Single European Market, especially in services; an ambitious and sustained drive to cut red tape, and successful free trade negotiations with the United States, Japan and other countries. We are also seeking greater powers for groups of national parliaments to block or review EU legislation; an end to benefit tourism, and the development of Economic and Monetary Union in a way that safeguards the interests of countries which have chosen not to join the Euro. The Government has already made progress in delivering reform, including cutting the EU budget for the first time and securing reforms of the Common Fisheries Policy that include a ban on discards and a shift to the regional and local management of fisheries.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), has discussed our EU reform plans with 19 Member States as part of his EU programme of visits. He plans to visit the remaining Member States before the election. The Foreign Secretary has met a range of Presidents, Ministers of Government, Officials, and leaders from Civil Society and business. He has been clear on his desire to seek agreement with our colleagues in the EU on the details of proposed reforms, which will be developed in discussion with Member States in the coming months. In the Foreign Secretary’s discussions he has covered the full range of issues that this Government would like to see reformed in the EU; Fairness, Democratic Accountability, Competitiveness and Migrant Access to Benefits. The Foreign Secretary has found a renewed focus on the economic aspects of the reform agenda, recognition that much of the UK’s reform agenda is now part of EU thinking and the clear message that Member States want the UK to remain in the EU.<br></p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK’s membership of the European Union brings many benefits to the UK, including jobs and investment, free access to the largest common market in the world and a strong collective voice to negotiate free trade agreements. EU Membership also gives the UK greater international influence on global threats such as climate change and Ebola. The Government’s position remains clear: the EU must reform to become more competitive, democratically accountable and fair for those inside and outside the Eurozone. The need for reform is widely recognised among EU Member States and the Government has already shown that it is possible, through our success in cutting the EU budget, reforming the Common Fisheries Policy, reducing the burden of EU regulation on business and ending the UK’s bailout obligations.</p> more like this
