HC Deb 24 February 1984 vol 54 c641W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list in the Official Report, or deposit in the Library, a schedule of the changes which have been made in the text of the draft Act of European Union as recently approved by the Assembly of the European Economic Community since it was debated on 17 June 1982.

Mr. Rifkind

The draft treaty on European Union adopted by the European Parliament on 15 February has no connection with the solemn declaration on European union — usually known as the Genscher-Colombo declaration—which was signed by Community Heads of Government at Stuttgart on 19 June 1983 and which was deposited in the Library of the House of Commons on 21 June 1983. It was a draft of the latter which was debated by the House on 17 June 1982.
