Here is a recent list of MEPs that are backing a written declaration on civil partnerships.

If it is signed by more than 50% of MEPs it will be adopted as a resolution.

It calls for “member states with existing same-sex partnership legislation to recognise the arrangements of other member states that have also made provisions for same-sex partnerships,” and for “guidelines for such mutual recognition by member states with existing same-sex partnership legislation.”

Resolutions are formally adopted by the European Parliament and forwarded to the Commission, Council and member state governments for consideration.

So far less than 10% of MEPs have signed up.

In European elections the UK is divided into twelve regions.

Each region has between three and ten MEPs and each MEP in a region represents each person living there.

ü indicates the MEP has already put their name to the declaration.
