§ Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he has attended any meeting of the European Council of Ministers of Transport; what contribution his Department has made to the formulation of Community transport policy; and whether he is satisfied that Welsh transport interests are adequately covered by existing Community administrative arrangements.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
The United Kingdom is represented at meetings of the European Council of Ministers of Transport by the Minister of Transport and/or the Secretary of State for Trade, as appropriate. The Welsh Office is consulted on European Community transport issues by the other Departments concerned and represents Welsh interests when Community transport policy is being considered.
