HC Deb 02 March 1994 vol 238 c751W
25. Mr. John Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on progress towards enlarging the European Community.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

On 1 March, Sweden, Finland and Austria reached political agreement with the European Union on their terms of entry. European Ministers also made progress in the negotiations with Norway. There are still difficult institutional questions to be resolved among the present member states before formal agreement can be completed. But we remain committed to concluding the negotiations at the 7–8 March Foreign Affairs Council.
