HC Deb 16 February 1999 vol 325 c738W
31. Helen Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with European partners about the St. Malo agreement on security and foreign policy. [69452]

Ms Quin

At St. Malo, we agreed with the French Government the principles which any new European defence arrangements should observe. Other European partners welcomed those ideas at the European Council in Vienna. Since then, there have been numerous contact at official level with both EU partners and NATO Allies to pursue detailed work.
