Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - Mr President, with reference to Mr Poignant's report, I voted against the notion that the EU flag should appear on all EU vessels. The diversity of the European Union is something to celebrate and not to eliminate. I look forward to the day when an independent Scotland will have its flag on its vessels and in many other places, choosing if and when it is appropriate to have the EU flag alongside. I do not believe that this is one of the occasions when that is either appropriate, necessary or desirable.
