asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) what is his policy on keeping the Council of Europe in the co-ordination system of staffing arrangements alongside organisations which go far beyond the European framework;(2) what is his policy on the introduction of a legal system unifying the staff regulations for all European civil servants, in particular those of the Council of Europe and the European Community.

We agree with the views expressed by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers in the reply it gave in September last year to Parliamentary Assembly recommendation 1,000 on a European Civil Service. Copies of the recommendation and the Committee of Ministers' reply are being placed in the Library of the House.
