Mr. David Davis

I have had several discussion with my colleagues in the IGC reflection group about the future of the European foreign and security policy arrangements, most recently when the group met on 3 October.

My right hon. and learned Friend the Foreign Secretary also discussed the future of European defence arrangements, including the Western European Union contribution to the intergovernmental conference with his WEU counterparts at the WEU Ministerial Council on 14 November.
