HC Deb 30 July 1984 vol 65 c112W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what follow-up activities have taken place by member state Governments in fulfilling the objectives of the first Strasbourg conference on parliamentary democracy held by the Council of Europe in September 1983.

Mr. Whitney

We welcomed the holding of this conference, but neither the conference itself, nor the Council of the Europe Consultative Assembly, under whose auspices it took place, has made any recommendations for follow-up action by the Governments of Council of Europe member states.
