To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to consult (a) employers or their representatives and (b) employees and trade unions over the European Community green paper on social policy.

The European Commissioner for Social Affairs has already sought the views of all interested parties on his proposal to publish a green paper on the future of European social policy. After the green paper has been published the Commissioner will initiate a further extensive round of consultation. I am sure that employers and trades unions will want to play a full part in that debate.
