§ Mrs. Golding
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many non-European Union nationals are working for the British civil service in Europe.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
All officials working in the EC institutions, including those on secondment from the United Kingdom civil service, work for those institutions. There are non-European Union nationals working for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Europe and for the United Kingdom civil service in this country, but their numbers could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
