Informal European Summit

Asked if the Prime Minister thought that Angela Merkel should attend the summit, the PMOS said that it was a matter for the German government who represented Germany and as a matter of fact Chancellor Schroeder was still Chancellor, the invitation was to Chancellor Schroeder and the anticipation was that he would be there. He would remind journalists that the purpose of the summit was to have a debate on how the EU responded to globalisation and it was President Barroso had set out in The Times this morning, that he did not believe that the status quo was an option. We fully supported that.
