asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the measures taken by Her Majesty's Government since May 1979 to achieve benefits from the European Economic Community for the United Kingdom.
The Government's aim in the European Community has been to sustain British interests within the wider context of seeking to advance and develop the Community as a whole. Measures have been taken in a wide variety of fields in accordance with this aim and it would not be practicable to list them. I refer my hon. Friend to the White Papers on developments in the European Community, which the Government publish at regular intervals. The latest in the series is due to be debated today.
