§ Mr. Marlow
To ask the Prime Minister how the mechanisms for co-ordinating economic policies laid down in the Maastricht treaty will strengthen the process of convergence with the aim of returning to growth and reducing unemployment.
§ The Prime Minister
The provisions in the Maastricht treaty relating to multilateral surveillance of member states' economic policies and the excessive deficits procedure will enable the Council to monitor progress with economic convergence. The Council's discussions on these issues will inform national Governments as they frame their economic policies.
