Asked about the contents of the EU white paper, the PMOS said that we had now made it part of the routine that every six months we produced a white paper updating the House on EU developments. That’s what this was. It obviously had greater significance because of the fact that our presidency started tomorrow and tomorrow the Prime Minister would be meeting the EU Commissioners. Asked if there would be anything ‘new’ announced tomorrow, the PMOS said that last week in Brussels, the Prime Minister set out his vision. Today partially and also tomorrow, we would do a press conference with President Barroso of the Commission, giving a bit more of an idea of how we wanted to translate that vision into something more tangible during our presidency. This wouldn’t be setting up a knee-jerk process but it was about taking forward the debate in tangible form.
