HC Deb 11 March 1991 vol 187 cc387-8W

44. Mr. To ask the Minister for the Civil Service if he is encouraging more civil servants to apply for postings in international organisations of which Britain is a member.

Mr. Renton

We attach great importance to Britain's being properly represented in international organisations.

With that in mind we have launched the European fast stream which is aimed at preparing British candidates for the recruitment competitions of the European Community institutions.
