asked Her Majesty's Government:What are the "Community incentive measures" referred to in the new draft paragraph 2 of Article 13 of the Treaty Establishing the European Community. [HL77]

The new second paragraph of Article 13 makes clear that Community incentive measures must support action in the member states and cannot lead to any harmonisation of the regulations or laws of the member states. In practice, any such incentive measures are likely to mean pilot projects and programmes on, for example, the exchange of best practice or information between the member states.
