asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether it is the Council of Ministers which will take the final decision about the level of allowances for the directly-elected Members of the European Assembly or the Assembly itself.

I refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 12 December by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to my hon. Friend the Member for Newham, North-West (Mr. Lewis). Allowances will continue to be determined and paid by the European Assembly as they are at present.—[Vol. 960, c. 148.]
