I was told yesterday by letter from Mr Van Rompuy’s office that “we regret to inform you that the Council of the European Union does not have competence, as this issue falls under the responsibility of the European Commission. Therefore, Mr Van Rompuy cannot intervene in this matter.”
The Commission take the line that they only have one vote at the EURSC, hence the matter is one for Council. Indeed the last Council meeting requested an urgent meeting of Education Ministers.
The ECJ noted that it was for Council to change the EURSC Treaty.
Shameful to see our School Children harmed by our political elite burying their heads in the sand.
