HC Deb 06 March 1995 vol 256 c81W
Dr. Godman

To ask the Prime Minister what discussions he had with the leaders of the other member states of the European Union, on the modification of structure, membership and functions of(a) the European Court of Auditors, (b) the European court of first instance, and (c) the European Court of Justice; and if he will make a statement.

The Prime Minister
