– Before the vote on Amendment 38:

  James Nicholson (ECR). – Madam President, on Amendment 38 to the motion for a resolution on the Commission Work Programme tabled by the GUE/NGL Group, it states in the original English version: ‘Notes and respects the fact that the people of the North of Ireland and Scotland voted to remain in the EU’.

There is no such legal or political entity as the North of Ireland. The correct term is Northern Ireland, as in ‘the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’. It is important that texts tabled in this Parliament adhere to legal correctness. I would therefore request that when amendments are tabled which are not legally correct they are ruled inadmissible.

 
  
 

President. – Mr Nicholson, are you moving an oral amendment or are you just making a point of order?

  James Nicholson (ECR). – Madam President, I am making a point of order to ensure that in the future ‘Northern Ireland’ is properly adhered to at all times in this House.
