To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has held with Chancellor Kohl and other leaders of European Community states regarding revisions of the treaty of Rome leading to a transfer of power from the national legislatures to the institutions of the European Community.

The last discussion between Community Heads of Government on institutional reform was at the Dublin European Council on 25 and 26 June. They agreed to call an intergovernmental conference beginning in December, to examine the possibility of treaty changes. Any revision of the treaty will have to be ratified by this House before it can enter into force.
