HC Deb 17 May 1994 vol 243 c431W
Mr. Marlow

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will set out the commitments made by chancellor Kohl to the European Parliament at the time it was voting on enlargement; and in what way each of those commitments bind(a) the EU institution or (b) the United Kingdom.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

Chancellor Kohl said that he wouldendeavour to have a working group set up, composed of governments as well as European Members of Parliament, and which would work in association with the Commission. Chancellor Kohl's commitment is not binding, since the precise terms of reference for the working group will be decided by member states at the Corfu European Council.
