EC Energy Policy: Canada

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has made to ongoing energy discussions between the European Union and Canada; what matters of energy policy the Government plans to bring up at next month’s EU-Canada summit; and if he will make a statement. (127341)

We are in regular contact with Canadian and EU colleagues about energy and climate security in the run up to the G8 Summit in Germany in June 2007, including the prospects for a post-2012 agreement on climate change.

The EU-Canada summit will take place on 4 June. An agenda for this meeting has not yet been set. We will, however, contribute fully to the dialogue at the appropriate time.
