EU Council

The PMOS said the important thing about this summit was that it was focussing on energy and climate change. It is very much a stepping stone from where we were at Gleneagles to where we want to be by the end of the G8 in Germany this June. We want the Council to set stretching targets fort tackling greenhouse gas emissions. To embrace climate friendly technologies, to commit to maximise efficient use of existing energy supply and to continue to open up the energy markets to competition. It is an important summit and we congratulate the lead that has been given by Germany as President of the EU.

Asked if the subsequent event in Berlin would impact on the Summit, how extensive would that Summit be, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the event in Berlin was primarily there to celebrate the 50th anniversary and it would be primarily a ceremonial event rather than substantial. Suggestions that in some way this was related to the Constitution are just wrong. It was primarily a ceremonial event.
