Should the Lisbon Treaty be changed?
A new European row is developing over a proposal to re-write part of the EU's Lisbon Treaty to avert another financial crisis. Do you think changes are necessary?
Germany wants limited amendments to the EU treaty to reinforce the changes, but is facing resistance from other countries.
Earlier, EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding said any discussion of treaty change was "irresponsible".
It took almost a decade of negotiations and two referendums in the Republic of Ireland to ratify the Lisbon Treaty, and many states are reluctant to make a move which could trigger a similar process.
Do you agree with the proposed change to the treaty? Do you think it is necessary to tackle Europe's debt problems? Would you propose any further changes?
