HL Deb 08 June 1995 vol 564 cc99-100WA
Lord Pearson of Rannoch

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, if their policy were to achieve a repatriation of British sovereignty at the 1996 Inter-Governmental Conference, they would still be approaching that conference in a positive frame of mind.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

We want to increase Britain's influence and promote Britain's interests by co-operating at a European level where it makes sense to do so. We also want the European Union to do less but to do it better. Both these aims are positive.
