§ Q146. Mr. Teddy Taylor
To ask the Prime Minister if the European Council has now received the necessary assurances on stabilisers to enable it to finalise the provisional agreement reached on 11 and 12 February; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
The meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council on 22 February endorsed the non-arable stabilisers proposals (paragraph 4–11 of annex I to document SN 461/1/88, a copy of which is in the Library of the House), thus enabling the overall agreement reached by the European Council on 11–12 February to be finalised, subject to detailed legal texts being agreed on all points.
