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.
ConservativeHome's sources inside the European Parliament will continue to report on these votes and bring a little bit of accountability to our MEPs.
