HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 c461W
Mr. Bernie Grant

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is Her Majesty's Government's policy on the European Commission's three proposed directives on the right to travel and the elimination of controls on persons crossing the internal frontiers of the European Union. [2828]

Miss Widdecombe

The Commission's proposals are not acceptable, as they conflict with our firm determination to maintain the United Kingdom's frontier controls with other member states of the European Union. Explanatory memoranda on the draft directives were laid on 12 October 1995.
