WRITTEN EXPLANATION OF VOTE (B8-0535/2017)
Ending child marriage

UKIP voted to abstain on this non-binding motion for a resolution. We utterly deplore such an abominable crime, and support tackling violence against women. However, we believe that this ought to be conducted at Member State level, and believe it is not for the EU to state where Member States spend their development aid, or to interfere with the financial decisions of international nations. The UK is already committed to the cause of ending forced marriage, duly considering it a criminal act under UK law.
