HL Deb 19 November 1996 vol 575 cc129-30WA
Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Government of Turkey is linking the question of NATO enlargement with that of its own accession to the European Union.

Lord Chesham

It is for the Turkish Government, not for Her Majesty's Government, to say what, if any, linkages Turkey sees between the two enlargement processes.
