EU: Reflections Group

Volume 697: debated on Wednesday 9 January 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they intend to make specific contributions in terms of personnel resources and ideas to the Reflections Group established by the most recent European Council on the long-term development of the European Union. [HL1054]

At the December European Council, EU heads of government agreed the chair and the two vice-chairs of the Reflection Group and a forward-looking mandate that focuses on the challenges the EU faces in the medium to long term.

The wider membership of the group has not yet been established but will include no more than nine members selected from across the EU on the basis of merit. The chair and the vice-chairs are invited to submit a list of names for consideration by the European Council in the second half of 2008.
