EUROPE – ECONOMIC & MONETARY UNION – 1 December 1999

Dr Julian Lewis: I thank the hon. Gentleman [Alan W. Williams] for giving way on my second attempt. According to the hon. Gentleman, one minute the Conservative party is deeply divided, and the next, it has given way to one side. Is it not a fact that the Conservative party is in line with 64 percent of the British people, who have made it clear that they do not want Britain to abandon the pound and replace it with the euro? We are united to the point that 84 percent of our members support the leadership's policy.
