Text tabled : RC-B7-0072/2010

  John Stuart Agnew, David Campbell Bannerman, Derek Roland Clark and William (The Earl of) Dartmouth (EFD), in writing. – UKIP fully supports the relief efforts and is horrified at the loss of life and those affected by the disaster, but we cannot support legitimising the EU in spending hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ money, along with its militaristic and diplomatic ambition to circumvent democratic and accountable nation states intervening in the crisis.

Of course, we encourage government and individuals to give relief and money to help those affected and rebuild the country. However, this must be done transparently with the public and not by secretive, unelected bureaucrats with international ambitions of grandeur.
