HC Deb 26 June 1987 vol 118 c8W
Mr. Maples

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will report on the Internal Market Council held on 11 June.

Mr. Alan Clark

The council reached agreement on eight items in the presidency action programme for completing the community's internal market. These were a directive and recommendation on the introduction of mobile telephony in the community, directives on standards for simple pressure vessels and on permissible sound pressure levels for tower cranes, two directives on type approval arrangements for motor vehicles and their trailers, and regulations on the requirements on exporters to provide customs authorities with guarantees, on the rules applied by member states to customs debt, and on the temporary importation of containers. The Council also discussed the entry into force of the Community patent convention and the proposed directives on the controls and formalities applicable to EC nationals at intra Community borders; on a right of residence for EC nationals in other member states; and on the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous preparations.
