HC Deb 12 May 2004 vol 421 c350W
David Davis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether Ministers in his Department were informed of the letter from the UK Vice Consul in Bulgaria to the Home Office Business case Unit, of 20 November 2002, regarding the operation of the European Communities Association Agreement scheme. [166558]

Mr. Browne

The operation of the ECAA scheme, including letters to the Home Office about it, is covered by the investigation which Ken Sutton is undertaking of the operation of the ECAA scheme for Bulgaria and Romania. I do not wish to pre-empt the investigation by commenting on the issues before it is completed.
