The next European Council is likely to be held on 31 March and 1 April. The Italian Presidency will judge, in the light of bilateral contacts with member States, if it would be appropriate to call an earlier meeting. I agreed with Mr. Cossiga on 30 January that there would be no point in holding an earlier meeting unless there was a real prospect of agreement on the question of our budgetary contribution.
