HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 c129W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the harmonisation of race relations laws of the member states of the European Community.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The Government are opposed absolutely to discrimination on grounds of race; and this position is reflected in all our discussions with our European partners on these matters. The detailed legislative arrangements in other member states are, however, a matter for them, taking account of their particular circumstances.
