EU Commission report

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) told journalists that the Prime Minister had welcomed the Agenda for Europe document that was published by the EU Commission today. It chimed with the vision that the Prime Minister had set out in his June speech to the European Parliament which came immediately after the French and Danish referendums in which he had talked about the needs to concentrate on the context within Europe, not the text. In other words, on delivering on issues such as the single market and economic reform within Europe to show real delivery for citizens, not the constitution. That vision was further defined at Hampton Court at our special summit, and was echoed yesterday by Chancellor Merkel, who had said that her number one priority in Europe was completing the single market. The PMOS said that what the document today showed was the dynamic within Europe had changed, and it would never be the same again, and there was a new consensus emerging as the document made clear. It went back to the Prime Minister’s speech, but it was also the result of our successful EU Presidency.
