HC Deb 24 April 1985 vol 77 c446W
71. Mr. Sean Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what reforms have been considered by European Economic Community Ministers in recent months.

Mr. Rifkind

The Council has reached agreement on the implementation of the budgetary reforms agreed at Fontainbleau. The European Council has made progress towards a common market for goods and services a major priority and has set a target date for completion of 1992. Institutional reforms have been considered by the ad hoc Committee on Institutional Affairs whose report is available in the Library of the House and will be the subject of intergovernmental discussions in the coming months.
