EUROPE – ECONOMIC & MONETARY UNION – 30 October 1997

Dr Julian Lewis: In the light of his repeated comments this week that all that matters are the economic tests, will the Chancellor explain what he would do if other countries went ahead with economic and monetary union and – against the expectations of people on both sides of the House, including me – it succeeded economically but the tests failed democratically? What would the Government's view be if a new regime emerged that destroyed the democratic freedoms of those countries?
