    Full question wording

    Next week Parliament is to debate whether or not Britain should opt into the European Arrest Warrant. This is an arrest warrant that is valid throughout the European Union, meaning someone suspected of committing a crime elsewhere in the EU can be arrested in Britain and sent to the other EU country for trial, and someone suspected of a crime here in Britain can be arrested elsewhere in the EU and brought back here for trial. Imagine someone is suspected of committing a crime in Britain, but lives in another country in the European Union. If the British authorities issue a warrant for their arrest do you think the authorities in the other country should or should not have to arrest them and send them back to Britain for trial?
