Dublin Unveils New Constitution Paper

Under new plans sent to member states on Thursday, the Irish EU Presidency is looking to clinch a deal on the tricky Commission composition question by suggesting it be reduced to 18 members after 2014.

Under new plans sent to EU member states on Thursday evening, he Irish EU presidency is looking to clinch a deal on the tricky Commission composition question by suggesting it be reduced to 18 members after 2014. This solution, which the presidency is hoping will be given the all-clear by governments, would mean that a country would lose their right to have a commissioner for one out of every three terms. However, Dublin has shied away from any other major institutional proposals ahead of Monday's meeting of EU foreign ministers -- the formal resumption of negotiations following the collapse of talks in December.
