HC Deb 27 October 1997 vol 299 c668W
Mr. Streeter

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the impact of provisions relating to a common foreign and security policy in the draft Amsterdam treaty on the accession of Estonia to the EU. [12537]

Mr. Doug Henderson

Nothing in the CFSP provisions in the draft Amsterdam treaty will affect Estonia's eligibility to join the EU. Estonia, like every other applicant, would be expected to take on all the obligations in the treaty.
