Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many EU Council meetings he has attended; and who represents him if he is unable to attend. (133754)

Ministers and civil servants attend many meetings as part of the process of policy development and advice. It is not the normal practice of Government to disclose details or attendance at such meetings. However, I can state that the British Government is always represented at EU Council meetings.
