EU Constitution

Asked if today’s publication of a European Union Constitution booklet was the high point of the Prime Minister’s road show on Europe the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that it was an information booklet for the public intended to achieve a better understanding of the EU Constitution. In answer to the suggestion that this was hardly the big fanfare for the European Constitution the PMOS said that nobody had pretended that it ever was. The referendum was some way off and we would take it step by step but what the Prime Minister hoped was that gradually people’s understanding would increase, first and foremost as Parliament debated the Bill. Asked if the Prime Minister had any plans to make a speech on Europe the PMOS said that he was not aware of any at this stage. He reminded journalists that the Prime Minister had made the case for the Constitution at the time it was agreed, before the summer and that he would continue to make the case from time to time. It was important to remember that this was not a sprint. It was something that would take some time and the Prime Minister was prepared to make his views known over that time.
