Mr. J. Enoch Powell
asked the Lord Privy Seal what is the status of informal meetings of the EEC Council of Ministers; and whether it is the intention to report the proceedings at such meetings to the House in future as a matter of course.
§ Sir Ian Gilmour
These gatherings are informal meetings of Ministers but not of the Council. They provide a useful forum for an informal and confidential exchange of views. It is not our intention to report the proceedings to the House.
