Mr. Charles Clarke

Prior to the adoption by the Justice and Home Affairs Council on 23 March 2000 of the document, "The Prevention and Control of Organised Crime: A European Strategy for the Beginning of the New Millennium", it was cleared by the European Communities Committee of the House of Lords on 14 March and the European Scrutiny Committee of the House of Commons on 15 March. Throughout negotiations on the document, we regularly consulted Her Majesty's Customs and Excise, the National Criminal Intelligence Service the National Crime Squad and the Association of Chief Police Officers. There are no plans for further consultations.
