Mr. Kilfoyle

[holding answer 18 January 1999]: I have been asked to reply.

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister and Chancellor Schroeder have authorised informal bilateral contacts. They are led on the British side by Lord Falconer on behalf of the Government. The exchanges also cover party political matters, which are handled on behalf of the Labour Party by my right hon. Friend the Member for Hartlepool (Mr. Mandelson).
