Asked about the Prime Minister’s meeting today in Downing Street with the incoming European Commission President, Jose Manuel Durao Barroso, the PMOS said that it was a significant meeting inasmuch as Mr Barroso was due to become European Commission President in less than a month. The Prime Minister and Mr Barroso would obviously want to address the issues on the Commission’s agenda, including those relating to the Lisbon reform agenda and regulation for example. It was also an opportunity for the Prime Minister to hear directly from Mr Barroso what his priorities were for the new Commission and to wish him well as he set off on an important period in the history of the Commission and the EU as a whole.
