To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when proposals were adopted in the EEC to enable qualified architects to operate in professional practice in other member states, if he has any record of the number of Community nationals who have been accepted to practise in the United Kingdom under these arrangements; and if he has figures on the numbers of United Kingdom architects who have been provided with the opportunity to practise in each of the other member states.

The architects directive was adopted on 10 June 1985. Since that date 230 Community nationals have been registered by the Architects Registration Council of the United Kingdom as qualified to practise under the title architect in the United Kingdom. No figure is currently available for the number of United Kingdom architects registered to practise elsewhere in the European Community.
