HC Deb 27 March 1985 vol 76 c207W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on Government policy towards greater political and economic co-operation between European Community member states and towards eventual European union.

Mr. Rifkind

We wish to see greater European unity brought about in practical ways, including concerted action in the political co-operation framework; completion of the common market for goods and services; and institutional development. Our detailed ideas were set out in "Europe—The Future", copies of which are available in the Library of the House.
