By the Select Committee appointed to consider
Community proposals, whether in draft or otherwise, to obtain
all necessary information about them, and to make reports on those
which, in the opinion of the Committee, raise important questions
of policy or principle, and on other questions to which the Committee
considers that the special attention of the House should be drawn.
EVIDENCE BY THE MINISTER OF
STATE, FOREIGN AND COMMONWEALTH OFFICE, ON THE COLOGNE EUROPEAN
1. In recent years it has been our
practice to take evidence regularly, normally after the six-monthly
meetings of the European Council, from a Minister of State at
the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
2. Accordingly, in this report we make
available for the information of the House oral evidence given
to us by Joyce Quin MP, Minister for Europe, on the outcome of
the Cologne European Council held on 4-5 June 1999.
