Letter from the Rt Hon the Lord Strathclyde,
Leader of the Opposition, House of Lords to the Chairman
Thank you for your letter of 15 December. I
apologise for the late response. I hope that you will still feel
able to give consideration to the attached, disappointing though
it may be from your perspective. I could not support this initiative.
The views are my own, but reflect discussion
with senior colleagues, including David Howell, as our spokesman
on EU matters.
