HC Deb 27 October 1997 vol 299 c667W
Mr. Streeter

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the policy of Her Majesty's Government on increasing co-operation in the European Union at the consular and diplomatic level; and if he will make a statement. [12316]

Mr. Doug Henderson

The obligation on diplomatic and consular missions of Member states to co-operate in implementing common measures adopted by the Council was created by article J.6 of the Maastricht Treaty. That obligation is relocated but unchanged in article J.10 of the draft Amsterdam treaty. We are committed to ensuring effective implementation of agreed EU policies.
