Asked what would be discussed at the European Council meeting, the PMOS said that we were at a different cycle in Europe than we were when we held the presidency. During that time we had the budget negotiations to complete and also the fallout from the referendums on the EU constitution. What we had also managed to do through our Hampton Court summit, was place on the agenda issues such as energy, where we were with the Austrians was that we would be taking forward these issues at this council. It would be unrealistic to expect any conclusion but in terms of preparing the ground for an action plan to be published at next year’s spring council. After the French and Dutch referendum results we had said that there would be a year of reflection on the constitution and we expected that period to be extended and some sort of reference point for when those matters might be considered. Those were the main issues that would come up.
