EUROPE – EMU – 14 June 1999

Dr Julian Lewis: In the spirit of cross-party consensus and co-operation engendered by the introduction of the dreadful proportional representation system, may I give the Home Secretary a tip for free? If he wants to increase participation in future European elections, let the Labour party take a leaf out of the Conservative book and bring its position into line with the views of 60 percent of the people, who do not want this country to enter the single European currency.
