British MPs criticise Brussels' secret treaty drafting process - 09.10.2007 -
British MPs have criticised the lack of public scrutiny during the drawing up of the new draft EU treaty and questioned certain key aspects of the document - including legal ambiguity on a citizens' rights charter and the role of national parliaments in EU law-making.

In a report published today (9 October), members of the European scrutiny committee in the House of Commons condemn the "essentially secret drafting process" led by Germany, which was chairing the EU at the time.
