Point Of Order House of Commons 2nd of February 2016

Speaking in the house of Commons on the 2nd of Februrary 2016.

“As far as I can understand it from the proposals set out this morning, the red card system would give a vote to both the House of Commons and the House of Lords as parliamentary chambers. This would open up the possibility of the unelected upper house voting with other European parliaments to force EU legislation upon the elected House of Commons. When you and your officials have had time to examine this can we have some advice on the constitutional implications of such a proposal?”
