HC Deb 18 June 1997 vol 296 cc222-3W
18. Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the effects of the single currency and the convergence criteria on public services in Wales. [2611]

Mr. Hain

The Government have made it clear that any decision on the single currency will be made in the interest of the UK economy as a whole. This includes our ability to deliver a level of public service which we deem desirable.
