EC Countries: Eastern Europe

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 3 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make it his policy to work closely with (a) Poland and (b) the Czech Republic on EU matters; and if he will make a statement. (197246)

It is our policy to work closely with all the EU member states. The Government have frequent discussions on a wide range of EU matters with Ministers and officials from both Poland and the Czech Republic. In 2007 there were several ministerial exchanges with the Czechs and Poles, including a guest of Government visit by President Klaus of the Czech Republic and a ‘European Dialogue’ which was launched between the UK and Poland.
