HC Deb 27 April 1998 vol 311 c27W
Mr. Mitchell

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what recent representations she has received from the European Business Round Table. [39327]

Mrs. Beckett

None. But the Chairman of the ERT has been invited to a dinner I am hosting in Brussels on 6 May for EU Industry Ministers and representatives of EU Industry to discuss competitiveness. In addition, my noble Friend Lord Simon, the Minister for Trade and Competitiveness in Europe, will be speaking at their colloquium on Innovation and Competitiveness.
