§ Mr. Howard
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the Government's proposals for reform of the European Union's Common Foreign and Security Policy and the future of the Western European Union. 
§ Ms Quin
At the Pörtscharch informal European Summit, my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister made clear his wish for the European Union's Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) to be made more effective. He also argued to greater European responsibility for defence, but made it clear that he is open-minded on institutional issues.
