HC Deb 10 March 1988 vol 129 cc318-9W
103. Mr. Dykes

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has had further discussions with his European Economic Community counterparts in the Finance Council and with members of the Council of Ministers on matters affecting European Economic Community indirect tax recommendations following the European Court announcement of 23 February.

Mr. Lilley

No. The decision of European Court of Justice concerns the interpretation of existing VAT law and is an entirely separate matter from the Commission's tax approximation proposals.
