HL Deb 15 March 2000 vol 610 c206WA
Baroness Whitaker

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What the outcome measures for the success of the 10 United Kingdom Territorial Employment Pacts agreed at the Dublin European Council are in relation to ethnic minority targets; and how far they have been achieved. [HL1346]

Lord Sainsbury of Turville

The Government are not involved in Territorial Employment Pacts (TEPs). The areas concerned deal directly with the European Commission. The Commission publishes regular progress reports on the pacts. The most recent report was SEC (1999) 1932, dated 26 November 1999, a copy of which has been placed in the Library. However, it does not appear to contain the information requested. Further information on this matter can be obtained directly from the Commission.
