Anglo-French Summit

Asked what was on the agenda for the Anglo-French summit later this week, the PMOS said there would be the full range of EU issues. The delegation would consist of the Prime Minister, Margaret Becket, John Reid, Des Browne, David Miliband, Geoff Hoon, Jim Knight and Malcolm Wicks, and issues such as climate change, defence co-operation, and issues such as the Middle East and Iraq would be discussed. The PMOS said also that EU energy strategy would come up too, as it was one of our issues we had in common with the French at Hampton Court.

Asked further about the environment issues, the PMOS said that we were continuing to implement the strategy that was outlined both at the G8 and then at Montreal. We were working towards implementing that agenda, and the key things that we had to achieve was progress, not only in how we increased spending on R&D, and we had heard in the White House’s press conference how much they were spending on R&D, but how we shared that technology within India and China. The PMOS also said we had to work towards a stablisation goal and get international agreements behind that. Montreal was important in that regard, but we wanted to carry that forward.
