HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c799W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on his meeting with Prime Minister Aznar on 18 June. [64232]

The Prime Minister

I met the Prime Minister of Spain in London on 18 June as part of the regular EU presidency tour of capital cities before a European Council. It was a very positive discussion covering the main agenda items for the Seville European Council on 21 and 22 June, including: a set of proposals and timetable for asylum and immigration; Council reform matters; the importance of keeping to the proposed enlargement timetable; national government involvement in the Convention on the Future of Europe and how to maintain the Spanish presidency's good progress on European defence issues.
