Departments: EU Council

Volume 459: debated on Wednesday 2 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many EU Council meetings she has attended since taking up her post; and who represents her if she is unable to attend. (133752)

[holding answer 30 April 2007]: Ministers and civil servants attend many meetings as part of the process of policy development and advice. It is not usual practice to disclose details or attendance at such meetings. However, I can confirm that the British Government are always represented at EU Council meetings.
