HC Deb 07 December 1999 vol 340 c512W
26. Mr. Clifton-Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what issues relating to the accountability of the European Commission are on the agenda for the next IGC; and if he will make a statement. [99972]

Mr. Vaz

The forthcoming IGC will consider the institutional changes that are needed to prepare for the next enlargement. The Government fully support this. Enlargement is not just about the applicant countries preparing to join the Union, it is also about the current member states preparing to receive them.
