Further to the answer by Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean on 18 October (HL Deb, cols. 701–3), whether they agreed that the views of those who do not wish the United Kingdom to remain part of the European Union should be properly represented among the United Kingdom's representatives to the convention which will prepare the agenda for the next Intergovernmental Conference in 2004.

I refer the noble Lord to the Answer I gave to the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, on 18 October [Official Report, cols. 701–3]. Her Majesty's Government are considering how best to ensure appropriate parliamentary representation.
