David Cameron's last EC report
We will have a report back on Council of Ministers deliberations after all. William Hague has announced in this week's, and his final, Commons Business Statement that the prime minister will come to the House early next week.
I hope that there will be an opportunity for honourable members to question Mr Cameron on the Council's decision to side with the telcos against European consumers in overruling both the Commission and the Parliament in permitting roaming charges to persist. It is two years too late to take the prime minister to task for the watering-down of vehicle emission limits, but he could also be asked about his and fellow Euro-ministers' attitude to the will of the EP in the matter of heavy goods vehicle safety.
