UUP welcomes the French and Dutch rejections of the Treaty

An official communique from the UUP said that: "Ulster Unionists have welcomed the resounding defeat given to the proposed EU 'Constitution' by the electorates in France and Holland. The United Kingdom's parliamentary democracy and our economic prosperity were threatened by the Constitution's federalism. Now that the Constitution's attempt to centralise power in Brussels has been defeated, there is an opportunity to build a Europe that respects the sovereignty of member states, recognises that power should lie with national parliaments and electorates, and focuses on building properous and competitive European economies."
