Berlin Declaration

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Prime Minister what representations he made to his European counterparts during consultations on the Berlin Declaration; if he will place in the Library a copy of such representations; and if he will make a statement. (134301)

I made no formal representations to EU counterparts on the Berlin Declaration. However the normal contacts took place at official level, and I discussed the declaration informally with Chancellor Merkel in the course of normal diplomatic contacts.

The document was written by the German presidency of the EU and presented to leaders shortly before the summit to mark the 50th anniversary of the EU on 25-26 March 2007.
