Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from the Chairman to Rt Hon Douglas Alexander MP, Minister for Europe, Foreign and Commonwealth Office

  Thank you for the Explanatory Memorandum dated 9 February 2006 which Sub-Committee C considered at its meeting on 16 February. The Sub-Committee agreed to clear the document from scrutiny.

  Paragraph 12 of the Explanatory Memorandum notes that the Commission is currently in the process of opening the Delegation, but paragraph 3 also states that plans for its opening were delayed as of 7 February 2006. Given the uncertainty concerning its opening and problems relating to the accreditation of the Delegation's staff, we ask to be kept informed of the progress being made on the opening.

16 February 2006
