HC Deb 10 December 2001 vol 376 c633W
Mr. Crausby

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he last spoke to his counterpart in Spain; and what was the subject of discussion. [R] [21548]

Peter Hain

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary's last formal meeting with his Spanish counterpart was on 20 November 2001, as part of the Brussels Process talks on Gibraltar. However, they also meet regularly in the margins of other EU and international meetings, such as the 6–7 December North Atlantic Council, to discuss a range of foreign policy issues.
